Product Description

Size Name: Case of 6

Il Papavero has been a chart topping customer favourite for years - a wine for all seasons; the silken Italian charmer with incomparable versatility. It's a great party red, perfect with nibbles, and partners pasta and pizza effortlessly. The value, too, is second to none. The secret? Papavero maestro Scipione Giuliani (pronounced 'Ship-ee-own-eh Ju-lee-arni'). 'Scipi' is a fifth generation winemaker and quintessential Italian gent. Every vintage, he selects only the ripest, most flavoursome grapes from the top performing regions to ensure Il Papavero is consistently delicious with soft, supple, red berry vibrancy. Sangiovese from the Marches, Abruzzi Montepulciano, plus Negroamaro and Nero d'Avola from the south - a stunning combination.

Having opened and sniffed the cork our first fear was that it was corked. However, decant and allow to breathe at good room temperature for at least half an hour, then my fellow red supporters, you will appreciate the silky smooth, velvety most definitely oaky flavour followed by a most pleasant Explosion of fruits and spice on one's palate. What a little cracker..... Leaving you with the question, do I open a second :))))))))

This is a very decent wine for the price. It is effectively Laithwaites' "house red" – a thoroughly reliable, easy-drinking Italian blend with a screw-top which always slips down well. It's very amiably flavoured, with plenty of fruit and not that much in the way of individual character, but for an everyday drop to go with your supper it's great.

Il Papavero turns up very regularly in Laithwaites' mixed cases so I've had quite a few bottles over the years and it never disappoints. Not one for a special occasion, but very recommendable as a very pleasant glassful.

Sorry to say I was really disappointed with this wine. This wine merchant is very reputable and the wine was not off.However to my taste it seemed weak and flavourless, may be me as many customers love this wine

While the wine is OK, this is a review about the buying experience. The seller/Amazon use Yodel to deliver these goods, and I have had nothing but trouble from them over years and years. I have tried to get Amazon to do something, but all they do is say they'll give them a stern talking to, and assure me it won't happen again.

This time the delivery was due on Saturday 6 Dec. It didn't come. I phoned Amazon on Monday 9 Dec and spoke to a nice man who assured me that Yodel would deliver. My heart sank as I avoid them like the plague. I told him that Yodel always just dump stuff on my doorstep (I have had books dumped in pouring rain which have had to be replaced). He phoned Yodel who promised him they would NOT dump it on my doorstep and would either leave it with a neighbour or take it back to the depot. I got home tonight and it was dumped on my doorstep. Visible to anyone walking by. It also has a 'proof of ID and age over 18 needed' sticker on it because it's alcohol. But no... Yodel just dumped it like the corrupt, inept, shysters they are.

I complained to Amazon who say they sympathise with me, and they PROMISE it won't happen again. But it does. Every time.

The wine itself is okay... but not worth the hassle of trying to deal with Amazon, and their blind reliance on this truly awful company to deliver stuff for them.

Good quaffing wine. Not too strong but full fruity flavoured.
Good price for pretty reasonable quality. Would definitely repeat order.
