Give me a vibrant, complex wine with notes of vanilla on the finish and I am yours.
This week we return to the Venetian territories and our much beloved Masi for a delightful winter warmer.
Spice and liquorice aromas lead to a soft, medium-bodied palate accentuated by notes of blueberry and raspberry, creating a wine that is fresh on the palate with soft tannins.
But alas, what to eat it with?
Well, could anything be more tempting on a cold winter’s night than a Mediterranean pork dish such as ragù or sausages?
Failing that, turn to a criminally under loved cut of meat, slowly cooked as you put your feet up by the fire.
