Festive wine recommendations from UK press

Passopisciaro IGT 2007 (£28.50, Corney & Barrow)

Passopisciaro IGT 2007


Writing in the Mail on Sunday Olly Smith gives some advice to those who are thinking of buying wine as a Christmas present, and he suggests, “select something unexpected and off the beaten track”.

One of Smith’s suggestions is this Sicilian red, he writes: “The sheer exuberance of this Sicilian red’s upbeat purity has to be tasted to be believed. If you know a Pinot Noir fan, try giving them this as a Christmas treat – it’s bolder, but offers a similar ethereal excitement.”
