Fantini Casale Vecchio Montepulciano D’Abruzzo DOC
Italy: Montepulciano D’Abruzzo
Price: $9.95 Vivino Rating: 3.7
Combine Farnese winemaking and the Montepulciano D’Abruzzo region and you have exceptional value.
Deep garnet purple colour with red and black cherry aromas.
These are joined on the palate with ripe plums, spice and oak tastes.
Medium bodied with a hint of sweetness, this is simply easy weekday drinking by itself or with a sausage and mushroom pizza.

Casas del Bosque Sauvignon Blanc Reserva
Chile: Casablanca Valley
Vivino Rating: 3.9
Excellent value at $16 for this aromatic, fruity Sauvignon Blanc from a top Chilean producer.
Baked apples and pears on an aromatic nose with tastes of citrus and grapefruit, tropical fruit and pineapple with grass and gooseberry notes in the background.
Deceptively low sugar (only 3 g/L) since it drinks smoothly, a crowd pleaser which can be sipped or served with grilled fish.
