Ciello Bianco Catarrato, Sicilly 2018

The 2018 is even purer than before, they really have produced a wine of extraordinary quality for such a fantastic price! It has so much flavour and texture and reminds me of quite a rich Viognier, with a lovely hint of tangerine with a windfall of orchard fruit, and then there's a lovely bread savouriness and salty Sicilian lemon pith to balance it out.

Pinot Grigio La Jara 2019 Organic

A Pinot Grigio that dances across the palate with as much enthusiasm and joy as someone dancing the Charleston. Organic and vegan to boot! Like all of La Jara's wines, this is made with the utmost care and respect to nature, and tastes just heavenly. Sunkissed apricots, peach juice and pretty fragrant flowers. A Pinot Grigio to make you believe in Pinot Grigio again!

Ortrugo Bonelli 2018

Ortrugo? No we hadn’t heard of it either, but turns out that this hidden gem of Emilia Romagna is downright delicious. Layers of lemon sorbet scrumptiousness make this a perfect party pairing – just throw in some crab canapes or a garlic prawn starter and you’ll be on the way to vinous heaven.

Pecorino, Linea Miru, Vinicola Carassanese 2018

Pecorino, the grape, not the cheese, is enjoying a sort of celebrity status among Italian varieties at the moment. It'll never quite be a Madonna or George Clooney, but a minor speaking part in a Hollywood blockbuster is well within its reach. The growing popularity of this grape of La Marche (there were only 87ha in Italy in 2000; that number must have risen exponentially by now) comes down to its light, fruity, slightly mineral charm and its bevibilita - drinkability. Pecorinos are typically aged in steel tanks and made to be drunk young. This is a wine that is all about love and friends and family. It is meant to be enjoyed with your nearest and dearest, plenty of great food and a good old natter. Post a recent sojourn to Bocca di Lupo, I am even more Italy-obsessed than ever, so why not try this with a rich and buttery Saltimbocca with fresh summer greens and creamy mash. Or take some time out of your hectic schedule and make an asparagus risotto, with a dash of the wine itself and lashings of parmesan.

Il Famoso Grottino Marche Bianco, Bruscia 2015 (Organic)

The Il Famoso grape is (ironically) rather rare. There are only around 12 hectares of the vine were known about in Emilia-Romagna, and another four in the Marches, planted by Bruscia. Stylistically the wine has similarities to Greco di Tufo and Viognier, although not as floral.

La Calcinara Clochard 2017

A lovely word, 'Clochard'. It means 'vagrant' in French and this sumptuous white is so named because La Calcinara's verdicchio vines lie outside the Verdicchio Castelli DOC boundary, making it an outcast, a vagabond among wines, wandering free in the land of great reds but nonetheless a verdicchio 'sotto lo stesso cielo' - under the same sky, as Paolo describes it. Rich and floral with lovely hints of jasmine and creamy almond. There's a delicious richness but its kept in shape by a brisk minerality and a lemony acidity which ultimately make each sip refreshing. A food-loving white that will also age handsomely.

Vinicola Carassanese Linea Miru Rosso Piceno 2017

60% Montepulciano, 40% Sangiovese that is soft, juicy and a perfect party wine. Nothing pretentious here, just a really honest little number from the Polini family. I've drunk it 3 times recently and each time I've been amazed by its warmth, charm, ripe fruit and herbs, and can't quite believe what a bargain it is. If only bottles would come around like this more often. We try so many, and know how hard it to source quality at the price when so much is VAT and duty (£4 on at £10 bottle). Supermarket shelves are full of wines that are beefed up with additives to make it seem like they're worth £10 or £12, but often they're hollow. But this really shines. It has real authenticity and effortless Italian flavours. Bravo!

Barbera Bonelli 2018

‘Cheap’ is not a word you often hear from wine merchants. Not publicly anyway. But ‘cheap’ doesn’t always have to be followed by ‘nasty’. It might also be followed by ‘cheerful’. ‘Cheap and nasty’ is a bumper roll of Poundland binbags. ‘Cheap and cheerful' is this fiendishly swiggable, bright, refreshingly fruity Barbera.

Monica, Alberto Loi, Sardinia 2017

The Nibaru is packed full of this rich, soft, heady Mediterranean fruit with dried herb and floral notes. There is some heft to this wine but it's still fresh and lifted and, with a meal, slides down like a salmon swimming downstream. Go wild with the foods of the Island, juicy, flavoursome tomatoes, used generously in sauces, artichokes, fava beans, peas, aubergine, courgettes. If you can manage to get your hands on some of this simple tasty stuff from your local posh deli, you don't have to do very much to them before you have Pure Gastronomic Harmony. If you are planning something a little more ambitious - roast hare, boar or game birds, say, flavoured with Sardinia-inspired herbiage like wild fennel, juniper and myrtle, the Nibaru Monica will also work to transportingly lovely effect.

Terre de San Leonardo, Trentino, Italy 2015

A blend of Carmenere, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon / 13% alc This is harmonious, restrained and very well balanced. It is classically styled - Bordeaux / Margaux type of finesse, with gentle berry and savoury notes with a light hint of oak. This stood out at a recent large tasting as one of the best values in the room. It can be enjoyed now but will, like Bordeaux, age nicely and be rewarding over the next 3 or 4 years.

Chianti Rufina 'Cedro' Lavacchio 2017 (Organic)

I've always loved 'Cedro'. But this is a new level. It's made only from Tuscan varieties. You get a lovely aroma of Sangiovese - cherries and ripe fruits, warmth, some herbs and earth. It's wonderful to have this much typicity, but also generosity, without it being in new oak or being overworked. It's such a pleasure when you raise a glass of wine to your nose and it fills you with good aromas and a sense of joy. It really does. I'm very impressed. Bravo!

A little more Italian swagger than previous vintages. Packed with rich cherry and plum, dried currants with soft leather and wild herbs. Plush and juicy palate of blackcurrants with blackberries and dried cranberries and some tobacco. Ripe and soft with a gorgeous streak of minerality. Drink now, but will lay down happily for 5 years.

Made by the wine legend Peter Vinding Diers, who was mentor to Peter Sisseck of Pingus, and Jacques Thienpoint of Le Pin. He also founded the Royal Tokaji Wine Company. From Syrah, we think he is making one of Sicily's very best red wines. Gorgeous, ripe, smooth, with lovely Syrah notes, but a unique and wonderful expression.

Monte Santoccio Santoccio Rosso Nicola Ferrari 2017

This is a truly an inspiring wine. It's a new release from Nicola Ferrari, the disciple of the late, great Bepe Quintarelli. I drank it last night with lasagne and was in seventh heaven. The nose captivates - perfumed with the tantalising bitter-sweet aromas of Amarone in the background, but it floats on the palate. There's a lovely density, with power yet with grace. The flavours are supremely delicious. It's wine perfection. This is a very special achievement. There is no need to wait to drink it as it gives huge pleasure immediately. But it will keep a few years.

This is glorious wine. The aromas are thrilling and uplifting with notes of fine cedar, pencil-lead, polished mahogany,chestnut and fine spice intermingling with the perfectly balanced fruit. The palate has finesse and elegance anddrinks sort of like a cross between a fine Margaux and Burgundy. Do not expect big wine, but do expect a great mouthful.It's the best straight Barolo that Renato Corino has made.

Indaco, Tenuta Sette Cieli, Tuscany 2014 (available in wood when 6 bottles)

This is becoming not just a top Tuscan wine but an Italian first growth, but still really is a wine for those in the know. A Bordeaux blend of Malbec, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. The pedigree is there in the vineyard. From the next hillside over, you can see Sassicaia’s legendary first vineyard, and Ornellaia, where they make Massetto. Tenuta Sette Cieli also sits above the famous vineyard Ca’Marcanda of Angelo Gaja!. But the best thing is the price remains sane as it’s not actually in the Bolgheri appellation, as no one thought when they drew the Bolgheri boundary that someone would be crazy enough plant above the woods, that are above Gaja’s vineyard. But they have!

Here rest the wines of Lionel Cousin, a winemaker trained by the man regarded by many as the greatest winemaker of all time: the late Henri Jayer. Lionel continues to pursue Jayer’s legendary attention to detail in the vineyards. This is a sumptuous blend of merlot and cabernet sauvignon that deserves to be decanted and slowly adored.

The terroir is in Melilli, an extinct volcano - south of Etna - with limestone, marine fossils. Made by wine legend Peter Vinding-Diers.

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.

Barbaresco Gaja Sorì San Lorenzo 2016

'The 2016 Barbaresco Sorì San Lorenzo is an eternal wine that will need 10-15 years in bottle to truly come around. Sorì San Lorenzo is often a big, virile wine. There is plenty of heft to the 2016, but at the same time, I also find an element of refinement and nuance that Sorì San Lorenzo has rarely, if ever, shown. Black cherry, cloves, menthol, licorice, gravel and incense are some of the many aromas and flavor that meld together in this dramatic and dramatically beautiful Barbaresco from the Gaja family. The Sorì San Lorenzo just explodes on the finish, with an array of aromas, flavors and textures that will leave readers weak at the knees. The 2016 is an outrageously beautiful, vivid wine of real gravitas and power.' 98+ points, Antonio Galloni

Barbaresco Gaja Sorì Tìldìn 2016

'The 2016 Barbaresco Sorì Tildìn is a fabulous, incredibly complete wine that soars out of the glass with explosive structure and vertical lift. The tannins are very much present, but also matched beautifully by the wine's aromatic intensity and overall drive. Dark macerated cherry, spice, leather, licorice, plum and mocha add darker shades of nuance. In 2016, Sorì Tildìn is a bit more brooding and bigger than it often is, and yet all the elements are impeccably balanced. It is quite simply a majestic wine of real grandeur and total class, but it is not obvious. Sorì Tildìn will appeal most to readers who understand what the truest essence of Nebbiolo is all about. In a word: magnificent!' 100 points, Antonio Galloni

Barbaresco Gaja Costa Russi 2016

'The 2016 Barbaresco Costa Russi is ripe, creamy and enveloping, as it so often is, and yet also preserves the super classic sense of structure that runs through all these wines. In 2016, Costa Russi has an extra touch of mid-palate sweetness that gives the wine its sense of immediacy. Succulent red cherry, rosewater, kirsch, mint and dried flowers meld together in the glass. Soft and sensual, with tons of allure, Costa Russi is another winner from Gaja. Time in the glass brings out the wine's density and tannins, both of which it has in spades.' 98 points, Antonio Galloni
