Share a romantic glass of wine with Villa Mangiacane’s Chianti Classico Riserva 2013. Hailing from the magnificent 15th century estate in the heart of Tuscany, which was originally built for Niccolò Machiavelli, Villa Mangiacane’s wine collection never ceases to impress. Blended from an exceptional selection of hand-picked Sangiovese grapes and aged for 18 months in French oak barriques, the estate’s Chianti Classico Riserva 2013 recently scored 91 points with the British magazine Decanter, in its panel tasting of 159 Chianti Classico wines from the 2013 and 2014 vintages. “A light dusting of lavender-covered cherry fruit pairs with a creamy spice note on the nose. Underneath there’s a dark chocolate character that’s vivid and deep. A showy, entertaining style with length and complexity.”
By popular demand, the 2013 vintage has been re-released for the festive season. Best enjoyed in good company, a taste of Italy awaits with every sip of this exceptional wine.

FOR THE STYLISH
Harrys of London Contemporary Footwear
Give the ultimate style gift this season – a gift voucher for Harrys of London. Synonymous with innovative design, high quality manufacturing and modern style, Harrys of London is a quintessentially British contemporary brand. When the iconic brand was conceived in London in 2001 by Matthew Mellon, the purpose was to create ‘shoes that feel like sneakers’, and the business defined a new category.
The Harrys of London concept started with the elegant, sporty lines and unique sole of the popular DOWNING loafer, followed by the soft, unstructured Basel moccasin. These styles which we now refer to as ‘the iconics’ were instantly popular and became the benchmark for everything that followed. Today the brand continues to deliver the ultimate wearing experience for men who do not wish to sacrifice style for comfort and vice versa.
NEW WOMENS FOOTWEAR
New this season, Harrys of London is introducing Harrys For Her, the new women’s shoe line. Just like the men’s shoes, Harrys For Her are made with Harrys of London signature Technogel innersole, which is covered in gel-filled capsules that mold to the shape of your foot, reliving pressure and providing a one-of-a-kind fit.
Harrys of London, 463 Park Avenue, New York City, New York 10022
