HOLIDAY PICKS…GREATNESS IN RED FOR $16.95/$17.95
. . . take me to the taverna
Dolcetto is one of the truly earthy red wines. Rooted in feelings of the countryside, and a rustic taverna where locals go for nourishment – of body and soul. This Dolcetto also offers richness and charm.

. . . Italy’s answer to Pinot
This is for Pinot Noir fans. Or anyone who likes their reds more charming than powerful. The Italian Nebbiolo grape is exclusive to Italy’s Piedmont region, where it produces expensive wines such as Barolo and Barbaresco – however, editions with a broader designation such as Langhe are more affordable. I could drink a lot of this.

. . . as good as it needs to be
Perrin delivers another Rhone-Village hit. Lots of tangy refreshment to partner with spicy flavours and warm cuddles. Love the Rhone.
