It’s useful to have a stock of wines that cost relatively little, but which taste really good. This is one of those Tuesday night wines. It’s a Falanghina from the southern tip of Italy, and it delivers.
Asda Extra Special Falanghina 2010 Puglia, Italy
12% alcohol. Full yellow colour. Rich and exotic with pungent melon and pear fruit as well as a subtle nuttiness. Powerful and spicy, with some tangerine and nectarine notes. Very stylish and intense with good acidity. 88/100 (£6.48 Asda)
