Another favourite was this Barbeito Boal Reserva NV which he described as having a taste reminiscent of “Christmas pudding.”
He said: “Barbeito deals in small volumes, focusing solely on quality. The Boal grape makes medium-sweet wines that are my favourite expression of Madeira’s characteristics.
“This one is dominated by rich toasted nuts and Christmas pudding, but there is also an admirable blast of zesty acidity that keeps you coming back for another sip.”

Price: £13, Oddbins.

    The D.O.C.G. Brunello di Montalcino rules have changed, some time ago … Brunello may already be released sooner than 5 years. In fact, the Brunello may be released after 48 months, including at least 4 months in bottle prior to relase.
