Tasting Notes

Made from the classic Chianti grape, Sangiovese, this is bright and juicy with great red cherry fruit flavours.

This makes a fantastic food wine, and is a natural partner to most pizza and pasta dishes, particular tomato-based ones.

Expert Opinion

In the press...

Of the 2012 vintage, Victoria Moore said: "Cheap and cheerful Sangiovese made for Tesco by Piccini. Easy-going, but it also has that slight dust-and-dried-cherries feel (and I mean that in a good way). This is the red you will want to have at the ready to wash down that weekday bowl of bucatini all'amatriciana you have been promising yourself."

Victoria Moore - Weekend, Daily Telegraph 24/01/2015
