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.

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.

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.
