Dried cherries, raspberries, tobacco and crushed flowers rise effortlessly from the glass. Delicate berry-infusions are contained within a tightly packed tannic structure. But the texture is beautifully silken. Freshness and verve are the hallmarks of this appealing vintage and this wonderful Barolo has it in spades.
Magnum 150cl £71.20
This succulent and juicy Montepulciano dAbruzzo has an attractive nose of red cherry, blackcurrant and lifted violet notes. Its damson fruit core is supported by liquorice, tobacco spice and finely knit tannins, making this a really appealing wine that would work wonderfully with tomato based pasta dishes, casseroles or a hearty Sunday roast.
