DRINK OF THE WEEK -
18th September 2017
Truly Irresistible Fiano
Drinker Rating 90
I think the poor old Co-op have had a bit of a kicking over the last few years. The banking thing and the nosed-up bonking banker didn't help. But in the food and drink department they're tip top.
The first thing we must remember about the Co-op is they are not a supermarket, they are a convenience store. Whereas Tesco et al have 350 plus wines on their shelves the Co-op will have less than a quarter of that. This means that their wines have to be completely reliable and really hit the mark.
So here we have their Fiano, pretty much all of the Truly Irresistible range are great wines and terrific value. This is all zesty lemon and grapefruit, a perfect light Italian white.
