Here we go again ladies and gents, the Saturday LIVE tastings are now on Fridays too!!! Tom and Baz...and sometimes Jen come to you LIVE....from Prestwich!! 3 tremendous wines, matched cheeses and a whole load of fun..In In is the new Out Out...Until we can be In whilst Out...shakin' it all about!
Also now starting at 8pm!!! :)
Wine from our favourite wine producing country...well, Tom's anyway...and since Tom writes all these, that's the end of that chat!! We are travelling up and down the iconic peninsula of Italy, visiting some breathtaking wineries on the way!!
The wines are delivered to your door, with matched cheeses and we then taste it together online, we will be live streaming on Facebook and Instagram LIVE and back on Zoom too!! Banging wines and 2 pillocks hosting...or 1 pillock and Barry...
The 'portions' are 100ml 'Tasters' and 500ml 'Carafes' or the imperious 'Full Bottle'. Pick the right size for you, your budget and how many guests you have.
Without further ado...here are the wines for this week;
- First up the 12 e Mezzo Puglia Blanco - the rant and rave about the reds that Puglia knocks out...time to try a white! Expect those crazy long and hot growing/ripening periods to manifest themselves in some serious fruity numbers here.
- Following that is another intact smash hit here, the Fazzoletto Barbera Passito (the one with the little neckerchief!!). 20% of the Barbera grapes are vine dried giving a fresh, vibrant and juicy red with aromas of sweet ripe plums and cherries
- We have to finish with a wine from one of the islands, and since Tom's been there its Sicily! Specifically the Cerasuolo di Vittoria by Planeta. 60% Nero D'Avola and 40% Frappatto is is a glorious harmony between fresh and juicy and smokey, dried fruit complexity. BOH!!
Serious wines, for (not very) serious folk...Should be an absolute spanker!!
