Independent: Wines of the week: Three medium bodied reds, just right for spring drinking

From Beaujolais

Domaine Chasselay, Quatre Saisons, 2014
Fabulous winemaking from a Beaujolais family with 15th century roots  – organic grapes, un-oaked to give a delightfully pure expression of clean, vibrant flavours of cherries and raspberries with some lovely earthy hints. Drink with charcuterie, terrines or lighter pasta dishes
£10.95 Vintage Roots

From Piedmonte

Barbera d’Alba Bricco Airoli 2011
Seriously juicy and succulent red from northern Italy packed with red fruit flavours, delivering a great combination of mouthwatering fresh acidity and just enough body to warm a cool evening and match robust foods. Great with roast chicken or veal or, ideally, a mushroom risotto.
£16.95 thevintner.com

From Rioja

Ramon Bilbao 2014
Young Rioja, but made from old Tempranillo and Garnacha vines, creating a beguiling blend of freshness and power. Crunchy but potent blackberry and raspberry fruits, with some very light vanilla and spice touches lingering on the palate, making it perfect for a simple steak or pork and chorizo casserole. And terrific quality for the price.
£9.49 (£7.49 as part of six mixed bottle purchase) Majestic
