There are legends, Naked legends, and then there’s Christian Patat. A man who turns everything he touches into liquid gold.
In his day job as a consultant oenologist, Christian travels all over Italy helping lesser mortals make their wines taste amazing. That means he knows where all the best grapes hide out, and is in the box seat to snaffle them before anyone else can get their cheque book out.
Having learnt his thang in Burgundy, Priorat and all over Italy, Christian knows exactly how to craft sensational wines, the proof of the pudding in his blockbuster Appassimento, nicknamed the ‘Naked Godfather of Big Reds’. It’s one of our most popular wines of all time and sells out every year!
When iconic winemaker Stefano di Blasi first joined Naked in 2014, we couldn’t believe our luck. He was the genius behind Solaia and Tignanello, two of Italy’s most famous (and expensive) reds at over £100 a pop.
Stefano’s dream is to make the wines he wants to and, thanks to Angel funding, he is doing just that! Super-premium Tuscan treats have been winging their way into Angel’s baskets for years now, and at a fraction of the price they would be elsewhere!
Our King of Tuscany has a real talent for bringing elegance into his wines that is appreciated by critics all around the world and, with nearly 60K ratings, it seems Angels are a big fan too..!
Meet Gianfranco and Serena Cordero...a seriously talented father-daughter combo taking the Italian region of Piedmont by storm.
They started producing their own wine in 2006 when they took on Serena's grandfather Teresio's vineyard so they could keep on working in his memory, and let their land be known all over the world.
Year on year this dynamic duo bring Angels some seriously plush Barolo, Barbaresco and Barbera red wines, as well as their 90%+ rated Gavi and Gavi di Gavi and they’ve racked up nearly 13,000 ratings in doing so!
