THE INSIDE SCOOP

We asked Leslie, a Product Consultant at our Summerhill store, to tell us about her top picks from the latest release. The sun-soaked regions of Southern Italy have been among the wine world’s best-kept secrets, but now these delicious, food- and budget-friendly wines are being rediscovered in a big way.

Island magic

SELLA & MOSCA CANNONAU DI SARDEGNA RISERVA

1703-Cheersto150-1.14-mspot-1_ENG

“This is a staple in my wine cupboard. It never misses the mark. And you can’t beat the price! Like the island of Sardinia, where this Grenache hails from, the experience is truly unique. It delivers a slightly spicier and earthier profile than versions from the mainland and its full ripe cherry flavours are lifted up by a bright mineral edge. You’ve probably never tasted an Italian wine like this before.”

Friday night feast

MAGNIFICAT GRECO DI TUFO 2015

“In my Toronto neighbourhood, a favourite Italian café recently shut its doors. My friends and I are already feeling nostalgic about their Friday night seafood pasta special: clams, mussels, squid and shrimp topped off with a brilliant lemon and garlic sauce. We’re determined to recreate this fantastic dish at home and this white wine from the coastal region of Campania, with its delicious citrus and pear drop notes, would be an ideal match. Wish us luck!”

Star quality

D’ANGELO SACRAVITE 2013

1703-Cheersto150-1.14-mspot-3

“I first discovered this red from Basilicata (the arch in the boot) at one of the big wine shows. It was totally by chance that I even noticed it off on a far corner table. But what a find! It became the indisputable star of the show for me in terms of value, flavours – think wild berries – and food-friendliness. I would highly recommend pairing with an herbed lamb ragu or spicy sausages slow cooked in tomato sauce.”
