What makes Queen of Wines special is that that all Barbaresco wines in the set have won the prestigious Decanter medals. We’re delighted that Glamour Magazine included it among thoughtful suggestions such as fine crystal wine glasses and in-person tasting experiences.
Independent Wine in the glossies
We’re no strangers to the press. Our fine wines often appear in prestigious publications like Forbes and The Independent. This is the first time we’ve appeared among the pages of a “glossy” magazine, and we’re excited that it’s one as renowned as Glamour. After all, they’re experts in all things lovely and alluring.
Writers Ali Pantony and Alexandria Dale say:
“it doesn’t get much more luxe than this wine gift set, featuring Barbaresco wines, AKA ‘the queen of wines’, made from the Nebbiolo grapes of Italy. Each one of these three wines has been awarded a medal in the Decanter World Wine Awards, which are pretty much the Oscars of the wine world. This would make a very special Christmas gift for a loved one who likes a high-quality tipple.”
Barbaresco – a wine fit for royalty
The gift set made its debut earlier this year to celebrate the late Queen Elizabeth II’s Platinum Jubilee. While Her Majesty the Queen is sadly no longer with us, we continue making this regal gift box in her honour. And, with Christmas coming up, it’s a fantastic choice for the matriarch of your family. Or anyone with an interest in fine Italian red wine.
What really adds a special touch to this gift is that the wines are presented in a wooden box. It’s crafted from sustainable timber, secured with a metal latch and finished with a dark matt varnish. Inside are three premium bottles of Barbaresco: Francone Barbaresco Gallina, Demarie Barbaresco 2016 and Francone Barbaresco Riserva 2015.
Three unique, award-winning Barbaresco wines
Each wine in this set has the bold Nebbiolo flavours that Barbaresco is known for, while bringing its own unique character to the table. For example Francone Barbaresco Gallina 2017 is rich and complex, with aromas of fresh strawberries underpinned by liquorice and almond.
Demarie Barbaresco 2016 combines bright and fresh red fruit flavours with powerful tannins. Finally the most mature bottle, Francone Barbaresco Riserva 2015, shows developed flavours of dried strawberry, cloves and vanilla.
Suffice to say, all three wines are very special. Truly a wonderful gift for any wine lover – whether they’re an expert, or just starting to build their cellar.
