WineClub Tasting New Spanish & Italian Wines

Thanks to everyone who attended our WineClub tasting last Friday.Our guest wine importer Colm Carter wowed us considerably with six new wines from Spain and Italy.

Dominio de la Vega Cava RRP 18.95
Montalto Cataratto 2009 (Sicily) RRP 12.95
Montalto Nero d’Avola 2009 (Sicily) RRP 12.95
Masciarelli Montepulciano 2007 (Abruzzo) RRP 14.95
Aga Roble 2008 (Navarra) RRP 12.95
Castillo de Jumilla Monastrell 2008 (Jumilla) RRP 12.95

The Cava went down very well indeed..reminded me that a good Cava really is much more like a decent Champagne than a Prosecco in style.
On the reds I loved the Masciarelli, I think this is a really fine dinner wine.
The Monastrell had plenty of fans too..a big bruiser of a red oozing flavour and packing a punch at 14%..

Another fun and interesting tasting..we’ll have another one next month..
