Two nice wines here from Abruzzo producer Nicodemi. Affordable and delicious, with plenty of personality.
Nicodemi Trebbiano d’Abruzzo 2009 Italy
12.5% alcohol. Really lovely aromatic nose with citrus, grapefruit and herb notes. The palate has a warm nutty edge to the fruit, which is rounded and broad with a bit of grapefruit freshness. Very appealing wine with a bit of personality. 88/100 (£8.99 Cadman Fine Wines)
Nicodemi Montepulciano d’Abruzzo 2008 Italy
13.5% alcohol. Nice sweet cherry and plum fruit nose with a bit of chocolatey richness and some savoury bite. The palate is ripe, sweet and juicy with some damson bitterness as well as sweet plummy fruit. A really delicious, intense, full-flavoured, fruit-driven, savoury red, finishing with some grippy tannins. 89/100 (£8.99 Cadman Fine Wines)
