NV Monte Benardi Fiasco!, Italy
Monte Bernardi; top producers in Chianti have bought us Fiasco Vino Toscano, a 1L bottle that is an affectionate, amusing nod in the direction of those straw-covered flasks which became such popular table lamps! The wine is a blend of bought-in organic grapes: Sangiovese, Canaiolo, Malvasia Nera & Colorino from Tuscany; Montepulciano from Le Marche and Frappato, Nerello Mascalese and Nero d’Avola from Sicily. Bright red cherry meets ripe plum and sweet baking spices, all wrapped up with some assertive tannins and a mouth-watering acidity. Really gluggable and great value! Look no further for the perfect BBQ red.
