Excellent value, lovely quality.
You will not get them in the supermarket.
I have been sent two excellent wines by Direct Wines from Laithwaites Wines. I got them by using my American Express points.
Castillo De Malvenda a gorgeous red wine full of exquisite taste and character. This is from a Spanish version of the Chatau Neufdupap and at £5.75 a bottle it is fantastic value for money. Extraordinary good value and 13.5%.
The second wine I want to tell you about is a silver medal winner, a Cavalcante Sangiovese (the grape also called Chianti) Di Toscana Baroncini. A slightly lighter fruity wine 12%, went down well with pate. This at £5.58 a bottle is also extraordinary value.
I was able to drink both these bottles of wine down at one sitting with no after effects, a sure sign of quality rather than chemicals.
I have a selection of four other luscious reds to try from Direct Wines at Laithwaites and will get back to you on them once I have tasted them. My rating of 9 may rise to 10 after I have tried them.
