Rich reds

The Sunday Telegraph - Stella - - #ONEDAY -

I’ve gone for youth again with three party reds – noth­ing too oaky or heavy, but just rich enough to take on food too. Head­ing to finer reds, there’s lit­tle to beat a de­cent bot­tle of Ri­oja at Christ­mas and I’ve got a re­mark­ably well-priced one, as well as a ver­sa­tile, de­li­cious fine Ital­ian.

Peuc­eta Prim­i­tivo 2017, Puglia, Italy casseroles or spicy red­meat dishes. Aldi, £5.99

La Ca­bane Re­serve Gre­nache-Syrah 2017, Pays d’Oc, France Great value for a ripe and rounded, smooth south­ern French blend with black pep­per in its tail. Crack open for roast pork or ham. tan­ners-wines.co.uk, £7.70
