Ascheri Bar­bera d’Alba

The Irish Mail on Sunday - TV Week - - FOOD & DRINK -

Piemonte. If Italy had a food cap­i­tal, this would be it, the home of truffles and glo­ri­ous wines. Ascheri is a Rolls-Royce kind of pro­ducer, a very posh name and this dark Bar­bera has the usual back­bone, cherry notes but with ex­tra depth, vanilla and smoke. Not a wine I’d like to get in a blind tast­ing. Was €18.99.

€11, O’Brien’s
