    You might remember this label used to have lycra-clad cyclists on the bottle (Farnese were the sponsors of the Giro D’Italia cycle race). They’ve ditched the men in tight shorts and gone for a much better modern, stylish looking label.The good news is the juice behind the label is as good as ever too. A cracker of a wine, it’s medium-bodied, juicy and bright that works magic with food –  pizza, pasta, meat or cheese!

    Pronouncing Italian wine names can be a bit of a mouthful, but don’t let it put you off!

    Farnese (pronounced far – nay – see) is the producer
    Fantini (pronounced fan-tee-nee) is the name of the label
    Montepulciano (pronounced monti – pull – chee – arno) is the grape
    D’Abruzzo (pronounced da brutzo) is the region
    DOC (Denominazione di Origine Controllata) is the second level of a four tier Italian wine classification system (DOCG, DOC, IGP/IGT and finally Vino da Tavola, table wine or as we call it…plonk for plonkers!)
    The Lowdown: 13.5% alc / 750ml / Cork
