Are you ready to say farewell to this summer? I have started wondering about the end of BBQ season and switching refreshments to a more comforting and warming selection of full-bodied reds.
Let’s say ‘No’ and trick this first days of autumn with a few organic wines that are red, but crisp, refreshing and perfect for al-fresco dining – be it in your garden, pub’s beer garden or at the restaurant’s terrace.
Let’s kick off with San Vito 2013 Organic Chianti. This Italian classic comes packed with pleasant cherry aromas and notes of violets. The taste is sour (acidity is high) and refreshing. This wine is simple, and just very juicy with red fruit flavours. Not unpleasant, but nothing exciting either. It is made with good honest organic Sangiovese grapes, so you can try and make your own judgement (it would be rather typical to Chianti, but slightly fresher); it retails at just under £10 at Vintage Roots.
