Here we are in mid-winter, locked-down and I’m cooking up a pot of ragu for a hearty supper of pasta Bolognese. To be accompanied by a gusty, earthy, Italian red, of course. The wine below.
It delivers the rustic Italian experience – deep woodsy flavours, combined with a warm hug. How good is that! For years now the Abruzzi region has been delivering some of the world’s best bargain-priced wines reds, and now some producers are pushing on to the next level with wines of character, such as this one.
