Nick said: ‘A full-bodied red with old-world charm, this is laden with baked fruit, anise and cinnamon flavours.’
Best with: Grilled meats and spicy pasta dishes
Extra Special Valpolicella Ripasso
Nick said: ‘Rich and smooth, with black fruits and spicy aromas, this turbo-charged Valpolicella is given a further fermentation to add depth and flavour.’
Best with: Lasagne or a Sunday roast
Extra Special Carménère Valle de Colchagua
Nick said: ‘Chile’s signature Carménère grape gives this plump and plummy red wine flavours of sweet spice, bramble and damson.’
Best with: Slow-roasted or BBQ red meats
Wine Atlas Bonarda
‘The rare Bonarda grape from Argentina produces a light red with strawberry jam flavour and a hint of redcurrant – good with an ice cube or two on a sunny day.’
Best with: Cheeses and meat from the grill
