Amarone Della Valpolicella 2008 Pietro Sartori

This Italian red wine is full-bodied and I found it to be too dry for my taste. Bought at nearly £15.  This wine goes well with strong cheeses.

Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2007 Daniel Schuster

This New Zealand white wine has a delicious blackcurrant taste with minerality and a smooth, dry finish. Bought at £15, a must try as it has an ‘expensive’ taste. It goes well with chicken and seafood dishes.
