Earlier this year we sent out the below email introducing a new wine we were quite excited by. The email received the best response we’ve ever had from our customers and the wine is now one of our best sellers. In fact, the winery have been so impressed by how popular it has been they’ve offered us a very special price for the Christmas period in return for a very large order – what that means for you is that you can save £5 per bottle for the rest of the year.
When I tried this wine all I knew about it was that it was a Sicilian Nero d’Avola produced using the apassimento method, a process of drying the grapes in the sun prior to pressing, which is how Amarone della Valpolicella is made.
My tasting notes are as follows:
A wonderfully rich, concentrated and opulent nose of Christmas pudding packed full of stewed currants and raisins finished off by having been drowned in Tawny Port. The palate offers more of the same, complemented by a weathered cowhide rug character alongside boozy artisan battenberg from a market stall in Shoreditch. If this is anywhere close to £20 it’s a bloody bargain!
