If we had to rely on a single wine to capture the essence of Italy, it would be Il Papavero. Every year it comprises grapes from the country’s best performing vineyards for consistently brilliant results. Supple, fruity and packed with character.
"Such an easy drinking wine. There is no overpowering taste, just a great all-rounder. Wonderful!"
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 with or without food and partners the universe of pasta and pizza dishes effortlessly. The value too is second to none. The secret? Papavero maestro Scipione Giuliani, plain ‘Scipi’ to his mates. 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 far south. A truly luscious combination.
