    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 (thank god). A light to medium bodied style to match heart Mediterranean dishes – we’re thinking rich pastas, spicy meaty pizzas, salami or other cold cuts, chorizo 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
    Sangiovese (pronounced san-joe-vae-sae) is the grape

    IGT (Indicazione Geografica Tipica) is the third 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!)
