Definitely a hearty red is needed to compliment the rich taste of the soups mentioned above. We chose a Simpsons of Servian Mediterranean Merlot 2018 which really hit the spot. All that Southern French sunshine is what Merlot needs to make this stunningly full bodied, velvety drop just bursting with plummy fruit with a touch of chocolate. This rich and fruity red is just right with any mediterranean-style food from antipasti to ratatouille with every shade of pasta in between. Available from Naked Wines.
