Outstanding wine.

5 stars

Outstanding wine. One of the best whites I've tasted in quite a while.

Brilliant value

5 stars

Fantastic sourcing from Tesco and a credit to Codice Citra. It's remarkable that one can produce such a high quality wine in such large quantities from a local grape. Fruity, mineral with m mouthwatering acidity and long finish. Brilliant value, buy all you can get.

Treasure in a bottle

5 stars

Came across the Passerina by chance visiting Uxbridge. Looking for a bottle of something already chilled we selected this. What a lucky choice, this is a superb wine with a very good balance of fruit and dryness without being too fruity, too sweet or too tart. This is now our most preferred white wine, with or without food.

5 stars

After living for several years in Italy, Italian wines are amongst my favourite wines. This wine is aromatic, quite dry but with lots of flavour. It is not acidic, as some white wines can be and is delicious with white meats and seafood.
