The Verso Rosso from Salento is wonderfully rich and inviting, with lots of of ripe and dried fruits, such as plums and raisins, dark chocolate and black pepper spice. Full bodied, mouth filling and velvety, the sweet dark fruit balanced with some bramble characters and welcomed tannins. Very easy drinking.
Verso Rosso Salento IGT grapes come from fully mature grapes from selected vineyards that are harvested at the beginning of October. After pressing the wine undergoes a long maceration on the skins to extract as much richness as possible. The wine is matured for 3-4 months in oak before being bottled.
Negroamaro: 60%, Primitivo : 35%, Malvasia Nera: 5%

2014 Chateau Saint-Pierre, 4ieme Cru Classe St.Julien
The 2014 vintage of this 'under the radar' Chateau is a blend of 78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Merlot and 6% Cabernet Franc. Chateau Saint-Pierre is the smallest classed growth in Saint Julien but has a growing reputation for producing excellent, deeply coloured reds. It is part of the Chateau Gloria stable and often eclipses it's more illustrious stablemate in blind tastings. Prices are creeping up as their reputation grows but these beautifully made wines still represent good value.
