Michele Chiarlo is the master of my favourite tart red, and he sells it at a very reasonable price. There is no better partner for week-night tomato sauced pasta or pizza. Also, grab a few bottles for ‘refreshment’ on hot summer evenings – tart reds do that. When lightly chilled of course. (Limited stock on this one – as you might expect considering the price, and fun to be had).
