This rose is a cool €3.99 in Tesco.
It’s not April Fool’s, but I sincerely hope this is!
I’m not sure how this got into the House … an acceptable bring nonetheless.
The label says is all “Simply” Chianti – Sangiovese from Piccini in Central Tuscan; fresh and fruity.
Tesco’s “Simply” philosophy is to present customers with a relatively small selection of wines featuring some of the most popular varietals with simple, easy-to-understand labels and sold at an affordable price.
From Tesco, a complex blend of Grenache Blanc, Marsanne, Roussanne, Ugni Blanc & Viognier from the maker’s website:
Must do some research on Rhone Blancs.
Competent slightly Oakey Chardonnay yet Characterless if you know what I mean.
The producing co-op is here
A first for me, Fiano is a low yielding white Italian wine grape grown in the Campania and on Sicily.
This is from Menfi in South west Sicily, near Marinella. Very nice, almost honeyed / buttery in texture with a citrus and nut nose.
The wine maker is the Settesoli cooperative whose brand is INYCON.
€10 from Tesco on offer. Slightly annoying that the same wine is £5.99 in Britain.
A very refined Chateauneuf du Pape from Jean Claude Fromont and this looks like a Tesco exclusive.
Slightly rusty colour in the glass, nice nose – hints of Chocolate.
Soft mouthfeel with good fruit complimenting the Lamb Chops.
A lovely blend of Syrah, Grenache, Mourvedre and Carignan.
The new mansion of the Pope is an under-rated style of wine.
