Pecorino, Linea Miru, Vinicola Carassanese 2017

Gentle ripe fruit, unfettered by oak. As easy-going as you like. Sweet floral apples – a Golden Delicious and Red Delicious sort of vibe – with pear drops and melon and a hint of jasmine. It’s generously fruity but with a palate-cleansing minerality at the end, that ultimately makes it a very refreshing wine

Sheep, Il Verro, Terre del Volturno 2015 (Coda di Pecora)

This wine owes its name, "Sheep", to the grape variety Coda di Pecora or literally "sheep's tail". Cultivated in the past in the province of Caserta, in the area between Monte Maggiore and Roccamonfina, the Coda di Pecora has been rediscovered recently thanks to the work of research and development of the five passionate members of Il Verro. A vigorous and productive vine, pleasing for its balance and an almost buttery finish.

Chianti Rufina 'Cedro' Lavacchio 2016 (Organic)

'To prove that Swig can do traditional Tuscany as well as modern Tuscany, here is a stunning, budget Chianti from an estate which they introduced to me a few years ago. With a bright, red cherry and cranberry nose leading the way it seems that this wine might be a little slender, but it blossoms on the palate and rounds out to reward the drinker with juicy blackberry notes and even a touch of lavender and liquorice for good measure. This is a beautiful wine and it is drinking perfectly already.' Matthew Jukes, Money Week

La Calcinara Il Cacciatore di Sogni 2015

The holy grail of winemaking - this is both rich and sumptuous and light and delicate. How do they do it? We'll never know, but gosh are we happy to drink the end result! The nose is like a hug in wine form - autumnal fruits, nutmeg spice and a touch of pretty perfume. Then the palate is like biting into your first damson of the season you can almost taste the juice running down your chin. All finished off with toasty, beautifully integrated oak and super smooth tannins. You'd be a fool not to snap this up!

Ruche Clasic, Ferraris, Piedmont 2014

Heard of Ruche before? No, me neither but it is definitely one of Italy's hidden gems. Those that whisper behind closed doors about such things suggest that Ruche originated in France but nowadays Piedmont is firmly it's home. Famed for it's red berries, perfumed character and earthy peppery notes Ruche is somewhere between Syrah and Nebbiolo and it thrives in the loose limestone rich soils of the Bric d'Bianc vineyard whose altitude and southwest exposure help highlight the grapes natural elegance. Ruche has remained in relative obscurity but Luca Ferraris and his 28 other Ruche-growing neighbours have decided to finally share their secret with the world.

Valpolicella Superiore Monte Santoccio Nicola Ferrari 2016

Forget everything you think about Valpolicella, because this is going to blow your mind! Packed full of cherry and a beautiful sweet and sour balance. On the palate, a melange of summer fruits - raspberrys and strawberrys with a peppering of balsamic and a hint of green pepper. Fantastic as a tipple, but will come into its own with food!

Hortulanus Tuscany 2011

Some words from winemaker Toby Owen about the special location that these vines are grown in. "Immediately in front of the vineyard is the highest and nearest of the mountains, Monte Amiata (1734m). Its high slopes of dense deciduous forest have a cooling effect and a pronounced diurnal temperature excursion, especially during the period of ripening: In late summer at sunset, chilled air from the summit of the mountain starts descending into our vineyards cooling the maturing grapes and preserving acidity. These conditions tend to provide us with grapes that are rich, not only in sugars and flavour, but also polyphenols (tannin, colour) and acidity giving naturally concentrated, firm, elegantly structured wines that can age with grace while also drinking well when relatively young. The protective presence of the graceful wooded massif of Monte Amiata lends perfect growing conditions to the patchwork of vines, olives, cherry and chestnut nestled in the high tributaries of Tuscany's great Val d'Orcia. Enchanting and remote, it's a place where man and nature live in harmony. Birds, mammals, plants and insects abound in a glorious springtime riot of colour, texture and sound. Just as did the vineyards of the Etruscan culture 2000 years before, our scattered plots of vines take their nourishment from the fresh mountain springs and the vital soils of limestone and lava heaved up and spewed out by Amiata's tumultuous volcanic past. Protected by the altitude and cool wooded slopes from the excesses of summer rain and heat, our grapes ripen slowly to reach perfect maturity and bestowing us with vibrant wines of intense fruit, elegant acidity and sweet tannin."

Yantra Tenuta Sette Cieli 2016

'My wife Amelia, who is herself in the wine business, tipped off Swig to this epic estate and they grabbed the portfolio of incredible wines with greedy hands. Made high up in the hills overlooking Bolgheri, where fat Super-Tuscans lazily ripen in the haze, the wines from Sette Cieli combine vivacity and intensity with exquisite accuracy. This is my favourite newcomer to the Tuscan scene and this Merlot / Cabernet blend sees no oak whatsoever. It retains scintillating freshness and drive thank to its lofty, breezy position and also the ultra-organic attitude of their fearless team. This is an estate to keep a very close eye on because it is tipped for super-stardom and Yantra is the perfect way to meet and greet the range.' Matthew Jukes, Money Week

Abbazia di Propezzano Montepulciano d'Abruzzo 2012

What an extraorordinarily lovely wine. There is no overt oak influence. You’ve just got the softened, subtly developed spicy fruit. Could nose this all day. Floral hints waft up from the glass, with high notes of wild strawberry, red cherry, lilies and hints of fresh leather, and low notes of all-spice and summer fruit compote. The tannins are fine, firm and savoury, the finish fresh and ethereal. This wine has five years' maturity already but will age for at least a further five.

Barbera d'Alba Sandrone 2014

Antonio Galloni, vinous.com "The 2014 Barbera d'Alba is a solid wine for the year. Rose petal, bright raspberry fruit, mint and sweet spices are nicely pushed forward. Bright and medium in body, the 2014 is a bit angular and lacks the seamlessness of the very best years, but it is nicely done. This is about as good as it gets in 2014 for Barbera. Drink 2017-2020"

Monte Santoccio Santocciorosso Nicola Ferrari 2014

De-classified Amarone. 2014 was a tricky vintage and Monte Santoccio decided not to label their Amarone. But that's what this is, but at half the price of normal. Sticky fig jam, dried prunes, red currants and sour cherries. Delicious.

Barbera d'Alba 'Vigna Pozzo' Renato Corino 2014

We've managed this year to get one whole barrel! Only ten are made. Somtimes we get none, such is the demand for this delicious and great value Piemontese wine. A barrel equates to 25 cases. Pozzo, meaning water well, is an excellently sited special cru in La Morra planted with 60 year old vines. It ages deliciously. When young you would be best decanting. You can expect stewed plums, espresso, roses, pine; it's plush and smooth with lots of fruit. You can age it for ten years or more and it's as it best between 4 and 10 years.

Guidalberto Tenuta San Guido 2016 (2nd Wine of Sassicaia)

The Guidalberto shows similar elegance and finesse that’s exemplified in Sassicaia, the sweet-fruited Super-Tuscan character of enticing aromas that Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot create when blended. Spending twenty months in one-third new oak barrels, this wine is irresistible two years from release, and will be ideal drinking over the next decade.

Sangiovese, 'Ciparisso', La Fralluca, Suvereto 2013

Gorgeous sangiovese with red fruit, soft oak and a little development. Deep sour cherry, a little blackcurrant, cola and sweetly decaying autumn leaves/stewed tea. Cocoa powder-like oak and vanilla hints. A glut of ripe-to-bursting summer berries. The palate is round with a sour cherry fruit note and beautifully fine, powdery tannins. The acidity keeps this feeling fresh, and palate is quite light despite the oak profile and ripe fruit.

Indaco, Tenuta Sette Cieli, Tuscany 2013

Indaco 2013 is from Tenuta Sette Cieli, an up and coming producer on the next hillside to the famous Sassicaia. It is a blend of the Bordeaux varieties. They are just out of the Bolgheri zone, on the Tuscan coast, South of Livorno, but if Bolgheri was re-drawn, they would almost certainly be within it. It is higher altitude than all but the highest of Sassicaia’s original vineyard, so the style tends to be a bit fresher than some of the more typical Bolgheri wines. 2013 is an important vintage for Sette Cieli as it was the one when the current owner took over the reins from his mother and took the wines in a new direction with a new winemaker . They are a producer to look out in the future. They share the viticulture team with Ornellaia.

Renato Corino Barolo Arborina 2013

An amazing cru that sits a few metres to the east of Rocche and just above it on the hillside. You get, from the slightly more easterly exposure compared to the fully south exposed Rocche, a slightly more lifted aroma with brighter aromatics and a hint more savoury and spice. This is exceptional wine that ages really, really well. I enjoy drinking Arborina on release, but it continues to reveal more complexity, depth and class over the years. Probably at it's peak 2022-2025.

Amarone Monte Santoccio Nicola Ferrari 2013

Using grapes that have been partially dried on mats from harvest until January and aged for 30 months in French and American 500l oak barrels, we think this is one of the most complex wines produced in Italy. It is not like the massive more porty versions of Amarone, which can also be lovely, rather it shows real elegance. As it ages you really get a sense the terroir and the grapes of Valpolicella, which can be masked by the sweetness and power of the more powerful, 'modern' styles.

Ombrone Cupano 2012 (Organic)

Behind many of the great figures of the past, stands a famous mentor. Behind Brahms, stood Beethoven; behind Boswell, stood Dr. Johnson. Lionel Cousin, the winemaker at Cupano, was fortunate enough to be mentored by the man regarded by many as the greatest winemaker of all time, the late, great Henri Jayer whose Burgundies, if you can find them, sell for more than those of Domaine de la Romanee Conti. Privileged to hold such a unique legacy, Lionel continues to pursue Jayer’s legendary attention to detail in the vineyards. Indeed, if Lionel Cousin isn’t chasing wild boar off his land (they love his Sangiovese!), he is attending to each bunch of grapes with a pair of nail scissors. Working organically and using a horse to plough between the rows, Cousin is making some of the most honest and authentic wines in Montalcino.

Barolo Rocche dell Annunziata Renato Corino 2013

Considered a Grand Cru of the commune of La Morra. It’s completely South facing and is typically the fullest and ripest tasting of Renato Corino’s wines. It’s usually delicious when young, but this is a bit more reticent and closed than in some years. I think that’s no bad thing and a reflection of using less new oak than normal. It will develop in complexity and richness over the years. It really does need another 4 or 5 years to open up, but it’s special and a great wine from Renato, from this excellent vintage.

Scipio Tenuta Sette Cieli 2013

This is a micro-cuvée only made in the best years – just 300 cases – to see what they can do with 100% Cabernet Franc. It’s pretty damned lovely – like Indaco, it needs more time – and you can tell by it being open for 24/48 hours that it’s got excellent potential, and it will just get better and better. It’s a bit more ‘right-bank’ St-Emilion style perhaps than the ‘left-bank’ Médoc. Like Indaco, it’s also another very special wine.

Brunello di Montalcino Cupano 2011 (Organic)

As good as the profound 2010 was, this incredible 2011 has us utterly smitten. We cannot remember a Brunello tasting this delicious this young. It is a triumph of a wine. It is perhaps the best example we've tasted of the late Henri Jayer's impact on Lionel's winemaking. Though the fruit and character are all Montalcino, there's an elegant soul of great Burgundy that runs throughout. For those that bought the amazing 2010, this is one to crack into while you're waiting for that to hit its peak. "The prettiest Brunello I've ever tasted. I had the opportunity to taste several Brunello di Montalcinos from 2011, and to a bottle they paled in comparison to this tremendous wine from Cupano." - Richard Bray, Swig Wines
