Pre-sells is also known as 'en primeur'. It means reserving top vintages before they are bottled. By paying an instalment 'up front', you reserve wine while it is still in the barrel, months before official release.
Demand for fine wines is always high as there simply isn't enough to go around. Pre-release guarantees you an allocation of the finest wines - providing you are quick!
Now you need only pay the 'cellar door' price. Prior to delivery, we will invoice you for the second instalment (duty - around £21.84 a case at today's prices) plus VAT on the total. Prices are for 12 bottles unless otherwise specified.
Once we receive your order we will send you a Reservation Certificate to your customer address. If the wines you have chosen are sold out we'll contact you to advise which are still available.

Puglia is a treasure trove of rich tasting reds that "give you a lot of wine for your money" (Decanter) and offer "undreamed-of character and potential" (Hugh Johnson). Our source for this top of the range special is the fabulous Cantine Due Palme cellar which has been named 'Winery of the Year' for three years in succession by esteemed local wine guide Luca Maroni. Renowned winemaker Angelo Maci took Primitivo, the region's star grape, from bush vines up to 80 years old for added intensity, then added a splash of the equally dark and delicious Negroamaro. Ageing in luxurious French oak has augmented the complexity and finesse of this dense, full bodied red. Well suited to meaty pasta dishes or grilled lamb with caponata (aubergine stew).
