Passo Antico, Isola dei Nuraghi, 2014


Dad brought this for his 80th Birthday Lunch and we got to try it later. “Old Steps” from the Island of the Nuraghi (the tower symbol of Sardinia) a solid dry Red from Sardinia.

“Old Vines Cultivated & Harvested with Passion” – Bottled in Bardolino?

Maretti, Langhe 2015

A return visit by the BBC to Richmond – nominated the best Neighbourhood Restaurant in 2016 by The Irish Times.

The party was slightly late placing our order (Sorry Dave!), so to expedite matters we again chose the Maretti which is a reliable blend of 70% Barbera and 30% Nebbiolo. This was the 2015 vintage and all agreed it was quite potable, though not exactly value at €37 a pop.

A competent meal, another satisfying evening in Richmond.
