Interesting - this was on my list to watch out for as I have 15s and 16s but doesn’t seem the most sensible with the price rise. Will probably choose to spend that on earlier vintages instead.

I agree. I have just put this little order together instead (I had not spotted the Vino Nobile 2013 before):

PRODUCT CODE DESCRIPTION PRICE QTY SUBTOTAL
IT32461 Chianti Classico Brolio 2019 £16.50 3 Bottle £49.50
IT24391 Vino Nobile di Montepulciano Contucci 2013 £18.00 3 Bottle £54.00
IT25161 Brunello di Montalcino Canalicchio di Sopra 2013 £49.00 2 Bottle £98.00
IT31091 Chianti Classico Riserva Castello La Leccia Giuliano 2016 ORGANIC £22.00 2 Bottle £44.00
IT30471 Chianti Rufina Riserva Frascole 2016 ORGANIC £19.00 2 Bottle £38.00

Thanks for this. I agree the price hike seems steep however I’m a sucker for produttori and will add a couple of cases to reserves.
I had a 2017 verduno and it was very promising

I had not seen this one before either, should be popular and the price is good compared to lesser previous years:

Looks like someone read your comments… this is now ‘only’ £30!

Bargain!! :grinning_face_with_smiling_eyes:

Based on the many disappointing’17 Langhe Nebbiolos I have tasted I’ll be skipping this. The price increase for what is an inferior vintage makes it an easy decision.

Sadly I missed out on the ‘16 from TWS. I still hope to pick some up elsewhere.

Maybe if we wait another hour or two it will be £28, reverse auction style?

Now that would add a bit of tension into the wine buying process!

I’ve had that VNdM from L&W, it’s excellent - better than most Chianti, I reckon. VN tends to get overlooked unfairly IMO.
