An interesting addition to the Tesco Finest range, made from the Aglianico grape and hailing from Campania in Southern Italy. This is inexpensive by good Italian wine standards but at £9 it’s not exactly cheap either.
This is very much a food wine, as there’s plenty of tannic grip and it could use some stewed meat, pasta in ragu sauce, or something to help break it down.
We think this is worth a look if you’re feeling curious about food-friendly Italian wines and you’ve never tried Aglianico. A WES rank of 6 means it’s still a good wine but we’d expect slightly more for the money. A definite maybe!
Available to buy at Tesco, both online and in stores.
