Peter Mitchell the Master of Wine at Jeroboams wine talks us through which are the best wines to enjoy this month
The Value one
2015 Pehhcora Pecorino, IGT Terre di Chieti £8.95
Pecorino is not just a cheese, but it’s also a fabulous and rare grape variety grown in central Italy. This is zesty with a hint of spice on the nose and has a ripe and juicy, yet crisp taste. Great with spicy food and a much more interesting alternative to a Sauvignon Blanc, this is an amazing amount of wine for the price.
The Posh One
2010 Chianti Classico Riserva, Casaloste £24.95
Just shy of £25 may seem a lot to spend on a bottle, but one sip and you will understand why. From a tiny Biodynamic (that’s one up on organic) estate in the heart of Tuscany, this boasts layer upon layer of dark smoky fruits and a rich, dry finish. A perfect match for the finest meat dishes, this is guaranteed to wow your guests.
The Red One
2014 Moss Wood Amy’s, Margaret River £14.95
The Brits were Australian wine’s first great love, but in recent years we seem to have been drifting apart. Well this is a wine to put you firmly back in love. A blend of Bordeaux varieties, this is made by arguably the country’s greatest Cabernet producer and delivers all the depth and ripe fruit you expect from the country, but with an elegance and finesse you perhaps don’t and as it’s big brother weighs in at £60, this is also great value.
