Quick, buy some bottles now!

4 stars

I bought a bottle on speck in the Tesco Supermarket and was very impressed, especially so for the £4 price. It has a fruity blackberry flavour with depth. It's worth every one of its 4 stars. So I went back and bought 5 more bottles (that's all they had left!). I now intend to buy a further batch via the internet.

the best of its kind......

4 stars

I got this on a very good deal, cheap, well around £3! If every wine I bought was as good against the price as this is, I'd be very happy. So much out there is too much money for not enough quality. Is it amazing wine? Of course not, it couldn't be! Is it very good of its kind? Yes, absolutely the best of its kind, Italian country wine made from a lovely, single grape variety, fruity with body and balance, easy drinking on its own and knock-out with typical meat, cheese and tomato pasta, pizza or some cheese with olives and crackers. I bet this sells like hot potatoes in Italy under a different label. I'm going hunting for more wines made by this Citra Vini Soc. Co-op. They really know what they are about. In the meantime this is now my current 'house red'.

OK but not as much flavour as I had expected - have had better; still can't expect too much for the price.

Great price

4 stars

This wine is well worth the money, it is a soft fruity easy drinker. Because of its qualities it can be drunk on its own but if you want it to accompany a meal it wont overpower the food. Would be great with pasta or pizza and just for sharing with friends.

Surprise of the year. Tesco Italia Rosso

5 stars

What a delicious value wine. Less than £25.00 per 1/2 case and tastes as good as any wine I have ever tasted. Full flavour, juicy, peppery, spicy cherry richness. I am certainly not an expert, but I have been drinking red wine for over 25 years. Some really good, some not so good. This is very quaffable and I delighted to have found it. Just about to order more. If the new bottles are as consistent, I'll let you all know. To close, my husband enjoyed this wine just as much as me. Thank you.
