Mr Mick Novo Sangiovese Malbec 2106

The back label states: "a great match to classic Italian cuisine". I don't think we need be as restrictive as that. I might suggest, paraphrasing Lily Bollinger, that you drink it when happy, or sad; when with company or alone. It is the style of wine that I can only best describe as slurpy, juicy, crunchy. 

I could almost leave it there. 'Novo' sufficiently sums it up, suggesting a laissez faire approach. For those who simply must have some fruit salad, ingredient list descriptors, it delivers berry fruit in spades. It certainly slakes a thirst, has enough about to take more than a chill, and backs all that it with soft, fine tannin to take on a bit of protein. Love it. 90
