The Mistress of Wine Recommends:
Masseria Pietrosa Verdeca 2017 Puglia, Italy
This is a really beautiful wine wrapped inside a gorgeous bottle and label! Made from 100% Verdeca, Masseria Pietrosa means ‘Old Stone Farmhouse’, referencing the lovely trulli buildings that can be found in the area. There are notes of yellow plums and spice on the nose and palate with a pretty, rounded texture, crisp citrus acid, length, balance and class. I loved this! Enjoy with roast chicken, Caesar salad or meaty fish.
Taste the Difference Portuguese Lisboa Red 2016
Currently on promotion at only £6 this is a blend of 35% Castelão, 30% Touriga Nacional, 25% Tinta Roriz (Tempranillo) and 10% Syrah. The wine was aged for 6 months in both French and American oak barrels and you really get a lot of spicy, oaky notes for the price…..this is a deeply coloured, extremely attractive wine with notes of coffee, mocha and spice along with bramble and black cherry fruit. A great wine for a BBQ, beef or chilli.
