Another bring from Dad from his local wineshop – Nectar.

Lots of fruit from Tuscany, very soft finish – a nice way to welcome in Summertime.

Wolf’s hill demense?

This more than workmanlike product is from Beaujolais and a reliable dinner party stalwart.

Inky colour, full bodied for its origin.

Super wine from Laura’s stock

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.
