If we had to suggest one wine that captures the essence of Italy, it’d be Il Papavero – here in a handy half-bottle size. It comprises grapes from the country’s best performing vineyards, for consistently great results. Filled with soft cherry fruit.
Supple, silky, juicy red fruits, easy drinking charm
Fresh and fruity red berry and cherry, with almond and spice
Il Papavero has been a chart-topping customer favourite for years. It's a wine for all seasons; the silken Italian charmer with incomparable versatility. The value too is second to none. The secret? Papavero maestro Scipione Giuliani, plain ‘Scipi’ to his mates. A fifth-generation winemaker and quintessential Italian gent. Every vintage he selects only the ripest, most flavoursome grapes from the top-performing regions to ensure Il Papavero is consistently delicious with soft, supple, red berry vibrancy. Sangiovese from the Marches, Abruzzi Montepulciano, plus Negroamaro and Nero d’Avola from the far south. A truly luscious combination. It’s a great red with or without food and partners the universe of pasta and pizza dishes effortlessly.
