Crocera Barbera d'Asti Superiore 2019Regular price £11.95
Aromas of ripe black cherry, damson and toasty spice. A rich palate with plum and sour cherry fruit, juicy acidity, and notes of dark chocolate on the finish.
Duck in plum sauce... or rich beef stews, cassoulet or even belly of pork.
Fazzoletto Barbera PassitoRegular price £10.65
You know a wine is going to be fun when there's a statue of a naked person on the label. Hide it from the kids (and wife!)
A fresh, vibrant and juicy red with aromas of sweet ripe plums and cherries. The palate shows the fruit-forward characters of cherry and wild plum and the ripe rounded finish is balanced by fresh bramble acidity.
As Claudio the winemaker states, his aim is " ...to provide a range that is both understandable and accessible. Quite simply, wine for drinking and enjoying."

Conte Vistarino Costiolo Frizzante Sangue di Giuda dell’Oltrepò 2020Regular price £11.95
Great alternative dessert wine. Bitter cherry aromas and flavours with sour cherry finish. Great with pavlova or strawberries and cream. Don't limit this beverage to just dessert though - it will go well as an aperatif or with soft cheese after dinner.

Barbera D'Alba Costa Bruna 2019Regular price £18.95
Aromas of black cherries, chocolate, liquorice and a hint of background meatiness. Authentic and classy Barbera with a finely textured palate and a quiet lingering finish. Bursting with pure wild berry fruit, offset by bracing acidity. Refreshingly not too polished, revealing a barely perceptible rustic edge, this is ethereal Barbera worthy of contemplation and a number of visits.
Food Match: pasta with a meaty sauce, flans, hearty stews and red meats.

Red cherry nose with a hint of vanilla. Beautifully balanced red with a unique blend of Italian grapes, native to Northern Italy.
