Tasting Notes Drink: 

Il Tauro is an easy drinking yet full-flavoured red from southern Puglia. It is perhaps the best-known appellation of the region for its inviting fruit character, blending local varieties Negroamaro and Malvasia Nera. Its distinctive plum and chocolate character has an attractive underlying leather and mineral flavours. Full bodied and velvety in the mouth, chewy tannins and subtle bitterness create a long and lasting finish.                 

Pair With: Most medium to strong cheese ,an excellent all-rounder due to it’s lack of oak and velvety tannins.

Our Perfect Cheeseboard: Roccolo Valtaleggio, Lanacashire Bomb, Cambozola Grand Noir, Boy Laity, Global Harvest Fig or Clare’s Damson Chutney, Peter’s Yard Original 200g, Fresh Grapes
