Named after a sensual Italian folk dance (immortalised by Dean Martin in ‘That’s Amore’), Tarantella is as charming as they come. Plummy rich Merlot, with depths of damson spice, from Puglia, home of “sensational bargains of real soul” (R Parker).
Not surprisingly for a dance that’s evolved over a thousand years, the origin of the tarantella is shrouded in mystery. Some say it was devised in Taranto, Puglia, as a cure for the tarantula’s bite (provided victims danced for three days and nights); others say it was an antidote to the morso (bite) d’amor. Less mythical, but equally enchanting, is the origin of its namesake wine. Discovered by our Buyer in a wild area of bountiful sunshine, ancient vineyards, olive groves and trulli, Tarantella Merlot instantly won over the team with its ripe plum and sweet spice character. Not to mention its enticing value for money! Decant and savour in generous glasses by candlelight with pasta ragù, tender loin of beef and your partner of choice.
"Elegant & Flavoursome. Smooth & silky with overtones of plum. Really enjoyed this bottle"
