Farinelli Rosso NV

Vino Rosso

Italy’s juiciest grape? It must be smooth, plummy Montepulciano. You’ll have met it in our bestselling Farnese. We headed back to the grape’s heartland, Abruzzo, on Italy’s coast, to find a new star and discovered this irresistible, fruit laden red.

While many of Italy’s famed red grapes (such as Sangiovese or Nebbiolo) are noted for acidity which helps ageing, Montepulciano gives a soft, juicy and approachable wine, even when young. The Beaujolais of Italy, perhaps, and exactly the style enjoyed by the locals. Farinelli is made from hand-picked, richly concentrated grapes grown on 30 to 40 year old vines high in the Abruzzo hills. What’s more, it’s declassified (without official DOC status), which means that although it can’t be labelled fancy DOC, it comes at a particularly pleasing low price. It’s the flavour in the glass that matters, and we’re particularly impressed by that. This is a fine match with pesto pasta, a roasted vegetable lasagne or chicken – from roast to pie.
