Chianti, Tesco, 2012

 

Tesco Chianti 270414

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.

Fiano 2012, Tesco. Sicily – Domenico de Gregorio

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.
