'Sacromonte' 2011, Castello di Potentino, Italy
A seductive, mature Sangiovese that really delivers a bang for buck (when you consider what you could be paying for wines in Montalcino 30 miles away). Ethereal and scented, with some lovely figgy and tobacco tones.
Something piggy would be the ideal match, so if you are having porchetta for Christmas, this is your wine. But would also be pretty darn good well-flavoured turkey with stuffing and sausages. Or a nice lump of hard cheese at the end of lunch.
