Meanwhile at the other end of the range MacQuitty highlighted this Italian red, she wrote: “This beautiful yet traditional Barolo is the first offering from Berry’s own label Italian range. Fratelli Alessandria is based in the hilltop village of Verduno and with just 14 hectares of vines, the family-owned winery prides itself on sculpting its wines.

“I loved this Barolo with bold, beefy, smoky, truffley fruit and a long, savoury, beef tea finish. Perfect with a rich game stew or pie.”
