Peter Gunn’s lamb neck wrapped in parsley recipe

Alex Russell’s Alejandro range of wines, new to Wine Selectors, is really wowing the Panel and his 2014 Montepulciano would be ideal with the lamb. A delicious example of this Italian variety, it’s savoury and ripe yet lively and fresh with a plush core of black fruits and just the right amount of tannic grip to counter the fat in the lamb. It’s a great alternative to lamb’s traditional partner, Cabernet Sauvignon.
