Ben says

★★ Great Wine “Vibrantly youthful with a deep inky purple colour. Nose of fresh blackcurrants, cooked blackberries, star anise, dried plum and strawberry jam. Full, sweet and spicy with well integrated alcohol warmth and surprising freshness. It’s doubtlessly a fruit bomb but, let’s be honest, that’s why you’d buy it. Superbly satisfying with zero posturing.”

Franciacorta Nature 'Coupé'


Varietal Malbec with 13.5% abv. No oak. Sipped over 3 days with no loss of fruit.

Grown in: Valle de Uco (mostly) and Agrelo, ARGENTINA.

Food Pairing

Try with strips of beef in a sticky soy glaze and grilled, alongside chips and dips. Also great with the messiest loaded cheeseburger (even better if the cheese is blue).
