After trying the wonderful white Roero Arneis, made by this producer (see my review on Aug 18), I decided to give one of their signature reds a whirl. This is a decent drinkable red from Piedmont, but is no where near as complex as the white. There is not enough fruit in my opinion and it is too light. Maybe I just missed its best drinking window. It would be good to try a more recent vintage to confirm this review. If you are going to buy any Malvira, stick to the whites.
2) I have to upgrade my review slightly after having some more of this after the bottle was open for a day. The wine tastes much better, and the fruit has come to life. If you do buy this, make sure you open it a couple hours before, and maybe even decant it…..Their whites are still the real deal though……available at Waitrose, 11£ btl
