The BBC visited the new Richmond Portobello Restaurant for the annual Christmas Dinner myself, Robbie, John and Ian took the Window table and chose this belter from the small but carefully curated wine list.
On presentation, it looked liked a classic French Pastis bottle which promised hints of liquorice and spice and the Maretti didn’t fail to deliver.
A super Barbera, this is a blend of 70% Barbera and 30% Nebbiolo, sourced from vineyards in the Barbaresco and Barolo terroirs.
Washed down my excellent gnocchi specially created by the head chef – our friend and occasional Golfing partner David O’Byrne – who dished up a super spread
All in all a great night; service, food and wine. Though perhaps we won’t sit in the Window again!
