Tell me about this wine….

An ode to his mother, Elettra, the Eremo 2020 vintage is a stunning red wine and the wine that best represents Andrea and his talent. In fact, to describe it as stunning might even be too limiting. It’s as smooth as silk yet deeply complex. Eremo 2020 packs a punch, it’s a meaty red wine. As a friend of the Italian Wine Shop once said, “It’s a red you could almost chew”. That is what makes this blend so interesting; Petit Rouge (another indigenous grape to the Aosta Valley) and Gamay are fresh and vibrant; they bring the berry notes, then the Grenache comes in with the body and style making this red one that can stand up to many French counterparts. Move over reds from Bordeaux, you’ve got some competition. To try Eremo 2020 is to try the first year batch of this promising young winemaker, when he inevitably makes it big, you can say you got your hands on some of only 800 bottles of this incredible wine.

Tell Me About This Vineyard….

Andrea Barbieri is one of the most promising young winemakers in Italy. We do not say that lightly. We have a special place in our hearts for Andrea for many reasons – firstly, his youth offers him frictionless innovation in his wines, taking inspiration from France and turning traditional wines into exciting experimental Italian wines that are cult classics in the making, all from a tiny unit in Aosta. Now, here is the big reason why these wines are so unique: every bottle from his collection is not only a UK exclusive, it’s an exclusive even outside a 20-mile radius of his winery. Andrea only makes around 1000 bottles of each of his wines yearly, and we have 10% of them. On the back of every bottle, you will see the bottle number, handwritten by Andrea and his Mum. This is a little bottle of everyday luxury, something no one else has, that tastes absolutely out of this world.

Surrounded by raw and rugged mountains, we have Andrea, a passionate guy who loves wine, doing what winemakers do best, creating drinkable art. To buy a bottle of Andrea’s wine is to experience something new and exciting. Every sip brings invigoration and regeneration; just a little of Andea’s infectious spirit lives in every pour. So watch this space; this certainly won’t be our last collection with him.

All their wines are neither filtered nor clarified. A minimum amount of sulfur is added pre-bottling.

We are accidentally creating a mini-series called “Sunday Wines”, and both the 2020 and 2021 vintage of Eremo fall smack bang into this series. Pair with a Sunday ragu or rich meaty pasta sauces for added depth.
