WINES OF THE WEEK

The Daily Telegraph - Saturday - - FOOD DRINK -

PIANER PROS­ECCO LE COLTURE EX­TRA DRY NV

Italy (11%, Cor­ney & Bar­row, £14.95)

A clas­si­cally styled, poised pros­ecco, del­i­cately creamy, with el­e­gant aro­mas and flavours of white flow­ers, ap­ples and pears and just enough sweet­ness to make it sing.

MALIBRAN CREDAMORA VALDOBBIADENE PROS­ECCO 2016

Italy (11%, Pas­sione Vino, £24) looks cloudy and has a faint, yeasty tang, with an aroma of ripe fruit and old bread. Spain (14%, Tesco, £8 down to £6 un­til Nov 12; there’s also 25 per cent off six bot­tles un­til Oct 31)

My third wine is a juicy, tex­tu­ral red orig­i­nat­ing from north-east­ern Spain, made us­ing the fruit of old vines. It’s de­li­cious – I love the fine grain that garnacha can some­times have, along with its sweetly ripe red fruit. Smooth, rich and full-bod­ied with a lightly spiced flavour.
