Review writes :
Pure Wine has clearly gone its own way, with a number of other perennial favorites in its portfolio in addition to specializing in wines from Israel. The assortment is characterized by honest, elegant wines without make-up that also work well in gastronomy. They are all carefully selected and for the most part very accessible, even when it comes to the price tag. Together, Cathy Moerdijk and Imko Binnerts form a couple with exceptional wine and food qualities.
In this box, the good to very good wines coming from the Italian islands of Sicily (5) and Sardinia (3) particularly stand out. The red wines are ideal for gastronomy: enticing, filling and full of character with good fraîche.
