Uno Piu Uno, Puglia, 2015, Michele Biancardi

[categories Italy, Puglia, nero de troia, Primitivo ]

Produced in Cerignola near a very special part of the world – Gargano.

A concise list in the Linden Tree dining room at Carton House, this was chosen on the basis of perceived value in an otherwise expensive cluster. Big whack of vanilla, fruit and smooth alcohol delivery.

Bardolino, 2015, Allegrini, Villa Maria, Riesling, 2015

A night on the tiles in Nottingham: Cocktail Aperitifs in the BoilerMaker followed by a BYOB meal at U.Canteen in the excellent company of Tony and Olivia

The Bardolino was light and went well with the spicy food. Slightly more interesting was the Villa Maria Riesling which cut through the sauces.

 

Vouvray, 2011, Monmousseau

Memories of Sussey Street from the Eighties when Vouvray was last fashionable. Flabby with a hint of liquorice, quite sweet.

Another so so from the wineonline.ie pot luck sale.

I guess we should be drinking this fresher rather than 5 years later.
