Tarantella Merlot 2011

Tarantino IGP

Juicy Italian red from a region home to "sensational bargains with real soul" (Wine Advocate)

About this wine

With big names in the wine world like Antinori (producers of legendary Super Tuscan Tignanello) and Mondavi Vineyards of California getting in on the act, it's clear that Puglia is a region on the up - even celebrities like actor turned vigneron Gérard Depardieu are buying property there! Made by talented winemaker Gaetane Carron, this pure Merlot comes from Puglia's exclusive Tarantino region and takes its name from a feverishly erotic jig that, so the local folklore has it, must be danced over three nights and three days to exorcise the bite of passion!Tarantella is soft enough to drink on its own, but it's better with substantial food partners - hearty stews, real sausages and mash, shepherd's pie or macaroni bake would all work well.
