Exclusive deal for unusual Italian

Maison du Vin, of Hawkhurst, Kent, is the exclusive UK retailer for the 2004 vintage of Cento Uve - the Italian wine made from 152 grape varieties.

Produced by Mario Giribaldi, the wine is described by owner Kevin Griffin as "powerfully built, yet has tremendous finesse with lashings of fruit and a wonderful seductive inky black colour".

The wine is made from 50 per cent Nebbiolo, but Griffin said that does not mean the other 151 grapes are subordinate.

The wine is on sale

for £29.99.
