MORE EXCITING NEW ITALIANS, this time from sizzling Sicily! The lava-ly Rapitala (‘River of Allah’) range features 3 contemporary, vibrant wines, including the triangular island’s flagship grape Nero d’Avola, an intense Shiraz and a juicy Grillo that does a good impersonation of Soave. The tasty trio are included in our 20% off Italy promo, and all will be open to sample this Friday/Saturday in our Cork and Naas wine warehouses.
Simple and enjoyable varietal white with clean flavours of melon, apple and citrus, broadened by a touch of toasted almond. Super easy to drink, with a nice juicy finish. Pair with macaroni with fresh lemon and cream sauce. €11.99 in Italy promo
Rapitala Nero d’Avola
Ebullient, frisky red with lifted aromas of cassis and aniseed, and an energetic, midweight palate that’s studded with black fruits, olive and clove flavours. Great drinking! Try with aubergine and tomato pasta. €11.99 in Italy promo
Dark ruby colour with an expressive nose of black cherry and menthol, with hints of white pepper. The robust palate has good chunky tannins and brash, fruity flavours seasoned with flecks of salami and rosemary. Really impressive! Use to wash down a juicy steak burger with truffle mayonnaise and tomato chutney. €11.99 in Italy promo
