(2019) Certified organic, and wearing its Eco credentials proudly with recycled glass for the bottle and cardboard for packaging, this is Nero d’Avola from Sicily. It has a medium salmon colour and fruity aromas, a little bit of bubble-gummy cherry, some rose-hip lift. In the mouth it is fairly generic I suppose, but then the fruit is bold and juicy, the acidity balances that, and it has clarity in the finish. I might have hoped for a little more from a wine that is obviously very carefully conceived, but it does its job well.
(2019) Organic and eco-friendly with mostly recycled packaging, this Sicilian white is the epitome of easy-drinking, fruity and fresh with peach and juicy lemon, good balancing acidity and drinking either as an aperitif or with lighter salads and summer fish dishes. Pleasant drinking.
(2018) A brut Prosecco, so drier than many and lower in sugar, hence the very modest 63 calories per 100ml, so less than 100 calories in a decent 150mm serving. It is foamy and frothy, with a crisp apple and lemon sherbet nose, the palate noticeably drier than many Proseccos, with plenty of lemony bite, but still enough pear and apple fruitiness to please fans of Italy's most popular fizz. Note that offers seem to abound on this: at time of review down £8.99 in Budgens, £9.99 in Ocado
