According to the experts, carbs are back on the menu for 2018, so Centra and SuperValu are recommending some Italian wine that would pair beautifully with our favourite pasta dishes.

James McLornan, Centra and SuperValu wine expert, said:  “Gavi, often described as Italy’s Chablis due to its distinctive crisp style, would pair beautifully with a comforting Spaghetti Carbonara.  While the super smooth Arbos Sangiovese from Tuscany would be an excellent match for the homemade Lasagne.”

CASTELLANI ARBOS SANGIOVESE       

  • Region: Tuscany, Italy
  • Tasting Note: This Tuscan IGT really delivers at this price point, where many Chianti’s fail. Expect Sangiovese’s classic cherry, raspberry and strawberry notes with a little spice.
  • Available in: Centra & SuperValu off licences
  • Price: Only £7 from 21/01/18 until 10/02/18

RICOSSA GAVI                       

  • Region: Piedmont, Italy
  • Tasting Note: Crisp with lively notes of citrus, pear and minerality; it is easy to see why Gavi is often described as Italy’s Chablis.
  • Available in: Centra & SuperValu off licences
  • Price: Only £7 from 21/01/18 until 10/02/18
