Cuvée presentation

The parcel Grotte di Sole is grown by Jean-Baptiste Arena, son of Antoine Arena, the domain's legendary figurehead. This cuvée is produced from Nielluccio. The grapes are grown organically and biodynamically, with natural vinifications. The variety comes from the Grotte di Sole parcel, with a clay-limestone terroir and south-facing exposure. Powerful, well-rounded, rich and fruity, this cellaring wine should be decanted before serving and will go perfectly with a seven-hour lamb stew.

Information about domain Antoine Arena

Scotland, Isle of Islay. Distillery operational. Owner: Remy Cointreau

Owned by Invergordon Distillers from 1968 until 1993, when it joined the Whyte & Mackay portfolio, Bruichladdich closed in 1995. At the time it produced an unpeated malt primarily used for blends. Whilst well-known for its bourbon casks released in 10, 15 and 21 year old versions, it was above all the sherry-cask versions selected and bottled for the Italian market that made a lasting impression. It was for Moon Import that Penny Black 1968 and Bruichladdich 1965 (52%) - celebrating the marriage of Prince Charles and Lady Diana Spencer - were bottled in ceramic jugs.Bought in December 2000 by Mark Reynier and reopened in May 2001, the distillery has since released endless limited editions and exclusive bottlings, including a superb 40 year old, several 1970 and 1972 vintages, and the Legacy range, primarily featuring bottlings from the late 1960s.
