Named after an erotic Italian folk dance (immortalised by Dean Martin in 'That's Amore'), Tarantella is plummy rich Merlot from Puglia, home of 'sensational bargains of real soul' (Robert Parker). Irresistibly dark and sensuous ' you've been warned.
Not surprisingly for a legend that'sevolved over a thousand years, the origin of the Tarantella dance is shrouded in mystery. Some say it was devised in Taranto, Puglia, as a cure to the tarantula'sbite (provided victims danced for three days and nights); others say it'sthe antidote to the morso (bite) d,amore. Every region now has its version of this seductive, sometimes frenzied jig, but we believe we are unique in offering a luscious red wine of the same name. Discovered by our Buyers in a wild area of bountiful sunshine, ancient vineyards, olive groves, trulli and wines of outstanding value, Tarantella Merlot exudes plum and sweet spice character. Decant and enjoy by candlelight with your partner of choice , with pork ragù or pasta.
