From the Western Province of Piedmont, Fazzoletto Barbera Passito (€10.95 down from €14.95), moving Eastward, and reaching Lombardy, they recommend the lively, fizzy Pino Pino Fizzante (€9.95). The next stop is the glorious Veneto, where you’ll find Rizzardi Spumante (€17.95 down from €20.95), an extremely-refined, fully-sparkling & extra-dry Prosecco. Finally and from the same region, explore Porta Nova (€14.95 down from €17.95), a big, bold, chunky Ripasso, with loads of sweet, ripe, dark fruit and good oak.
Bollinger at a Special Value
Champagne Lovers will be seduced by Bollinger Special Cuvée NV at €55 (down from €64). This premium bubbly was rated 91 by Wine Spectator and described as “A rich, smoky Champagne, with hints of marzipan and fennel seed accenting honeyed malt, bread dough, baked apple and gingersnap flavors. It’s all focu sed by intense acidity, which meshes beautifully into the layers of flavor and refined texture, with a lingering finish.”.
Spirits and Craft Beer
Besides wines, several world-famous spirits are on sale: Absolute Vodka 70 cl (€20 from €28.50), Bushmills Black (€25 from €33), Hendricks Gin (€€42 from €45.50).
Craft beer lovers will enjoy special gift boxes like Dot Brew Red Trilogy 33cl Bottles 3 Pack (€14.95) or the American Mixed 6 Bottle Gift Pack (€21 from €24).
