4.0 out of 5 stars Red? Ohhh yes please my dear
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...

1.0 out of 5 stars Dinner Wine
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

This review is from: Il Papavero Red Wine 75cl (Case of 6)
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.

A very good wine either as an aperitif or with food. Not too dry. I drank a bottle with salmon today. Lovely! Just let it breathe for about an hour to get the best out of it. Viva Italia!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent value Red, 9 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A rather nice, typically Italian red at a good price. Have shared this with family an friend who all agree with my assessment. Also pleased that Laithwaites have not pestered me to buy more from them. Will probably buy more through Amazon.

This review is from: Il Papavero Red Wine 75cl (Case of 6)
Excellent service and well packaged. Tried this wine some weeks ago on the recommendation of a friend, hence the order for 6 bottles. Great taste so not sure these will last very long before next order required.
