Something For the Weekend 4 April 2015

Night In

2013 Caruso & Minini Perricone

Not just a stylish label but a hugely characterful Sicilian red whose spicily minty fragrance gives way to an intensely flavoured red infused with dried herb and cherries leavened by a spicy freshness on the aftertaste. £8, Marks & Spencer.

Dinner Party

2013 Escarpment The Edge Pinot Noir

From pinot noir legend Larry McKenna, this is a delightfully perfumed, spicily fragrant Kiwi pinot from Martinborough showing spicy raspberry and cherryish flavours and a seductively juicy texture thanks to subtle French oak influence. £11.24, down from £14.99, Waitrose.

Splash Out

2012 Riecine Chianti Classico

Wafting herb and cherry, this classic Tuscan blend opens out to an opulent, classically sweet and sour cherry sangiovese, whose pitch perfect weight and concentration of flavour are etched with freshness and youthful, muscular grip. £16-16.95, Goedhuis, Tanners, Fine & Rare.
