Carlo Pellegrino Passito di Pantelleria liquoroso 50cl bottle 2018

The jewels in the Carlo Pellegrino crown are the dessert wines from the island of Pantelleria, a volcanic outcrop of black lava rock situated off the arid Tunisian coast which forms Italy's southernmost DOC region. Over 300 small growers supply Pellegrino with premium quality Zibibbo (Moscato) grapes. Quality is guaranteed through strict pruning and the growers keep to below 30 hectolitres per hectare as part of the contract. Pellegrino invester over £2 million in the construction of a winery on Pantelleria. The Passito is made with about 20% sun dried grapes added to the must; the result is an elegant and complex tasting wine; delicious poured over ice cream.

Vinification
Soft pressing of the grapes. Fermentation in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. When the alcohol reaches 4/5% fermentation is stopped by adding alcohol. 20% of naturally sun-dried grapes are added to the must during fermentation.

Viticulture
The vineyards are located in small terraces surrounded by stone walls and the vines are grown very low in a crater hole to protect them from the strong winds

Tasting Note
This dessert wine, made from at least 20% of naturally dried grapes, is complex and elegant in style with a bouquet reminiscent of dried fruit, apricots and an intense and lingering finish.

Everyday Serving Suggestion
At room temperature or slightly chilled. Pairs beautifully with a variety of desserts, from fruits crumbles to honey and nutbased dishes, but also with hard cheeses.

Can you explain your shipping charges?

We charge the amount the courier charges us to deliver the wines. In the majority of cases this is £10.00 for a dozen wines. For local delivery we charge £5.00 as we can often do this ourselves, by local we mean Milton Keynes.

Couriers charge by weight and size and a case of wines is both heavy and bulky and so the costs are fairly high. The charges are the same if you are buying 1 bottle or 6 bottles but they change if you go over 6 bottles due the the excess weight and size. Couriers also charge a fee to cover fuel excess and this all goes towards the total cost not to mention the 20% VAT to be added to everything.

Currently if someone orders a dozen wines they are charged £10.00 but if they order 24 bottles the charge is the same!

If you wish to have your wines shipped to other countries the costs are extreemly high and often not worth paying for. The cost for example to ship to the USA for a dozen wines would be £100.00 for the shipping alone! Therefore we have taken the decision not to ship any wines outside of the UK.

 

What is your minimum order?

The minimum order is 1 bottle! I prefer it if people order more and you get better value with the delivery if you do this too!

 

What if I want to send wine as a gift?

No problem, we will send to your preferred address and even include a card free of charge!

We have two kinds of cards a blank one and a Thank you one. However if you want a Valentines one or a birthday card or anyother type of card please let us know. We will write your personal greeting and even include the soppy stuff. We don't charge for the cards as its our way of thanking you for choosing us to send a gift to your loved one. 

 

What about a discount?

I may be able to take a little off the price if you ask nicely and there is a large enough order. Please do not ask for a discount on any orders under 12 bottles.  Email me with your requirements and I will let you know if I can do anything. However the best way to get a discount is to sign up for the newsletter as there is often special offers given away to newsletter subscribers.
