2015 Masseria Pietrosa Verdeca, Cantine San Marzano, Puglia
£6 down from £8, 13%, Morrison's
Tasted at: Wine of the Week
Even at its normal price, this fine-looking Italian white from the country's boot heel is a total bargain, but at £6 it shoudl ahve people queueing out of the door. Blending the local Verdeca grape (not the same thing as Verdejo) with 2.5% each of Sauvignon Blanc and Malvasia, it's a tangy, crunchy thirstquencher with flavours of pear and orange zest and lovely texture.
