VILLA SALETTA JOIN TOP SELECTION PORTFOLIO
3 February 2020
We are delighted to announce boutique Tuscan winery, Villa Saletta have appointed Top Selection as exclusive UK distributors for their range of award-winning IGT Toscana and DOCG Chianti wines.
The historic 1,760- acre estate was purchased by UK financier Guy Hands and his wife Julia in 2000, with a vision to restore a rich winemaking tradition that could be traced back to 980AD. Following considerable investment in the renovation of old vines and new plots, Villa Saletta has 22 hectares, planted with Sangiovese and international varietals including Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot.
We will initially import 5 wines, including the range topping “Super Tuscan” 980AD, IWSC Gold Medal winning Chiave di Saletta and a DOCG Chianti. Head Winemaker, David Landini, will be attending the Top Selection Portfolio Tasting on February 25th to launch the wines to the trade. For further information please contact your account manager.
