Puglia, Rosso, 2012, Marks & Spencer

Puglia Rosso M&S 060514

Part of the wine choice in a Bank Holiday Meal deal.

We normally look forward to “pot luck” with these deals and choose the Italian as the most reliable.

Alas, not bad, but very standard fare from M&S who described is thus:

“Ripe but soft Italian red wine, deeply coloured with rich blackberry and cherry notes and hint of toasted nut”

Soft indeed. And bottled a long way from Puglia: http://www.casagirelli.it/Private-Label
