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 2019

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.

Arneis, Elvio Tintero 2019

A wine that sings of springtime. Very lovely floral nose of orange blossom and honeysuckle with notes of juicy white pear flesh, blanched almonds and citrus. The palate has a nice, faintly saline mineral quality which will make this a winner with fish dishes (especially salmon), creamy sauces and light pastas (see the classic Sicilian pasta below). These are young arneis vines, so the wine's on the light side, but sometimes that's exactly what you want: delicate, with absolutely charming aromatics, bright varietal character and palate-cleansing freshness.

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 2019

It's always fun to match the wine to the food of the region the wine is from. In the case of our Bonelli Barbera, you're spoiled for choice. A classic tagliatelle Bolognese would fit the bill very nicely. Or, if you can find a good Italian deli try gramigna (a pasta like an elongated macaroni, unique to Bologna) with a simple sausage, white wine and tomato sauce, sprinkled with blizzard of mature Parmesan.

Nebbiolo, Elvio Tintero 2018

I wouldn't bat an eyelid if you told me this was a Barolo or Barbaresco at over £20. Gentle fragrant rose, quite pale in colour, a hint of strawberry, fired brick and earth flavours. The best producers are those that handle the grapes gently, which in turn expresses the magic of the terroir and shows Nebbiolo at its almost Pinot Noir - like best. The colour is quite pale, like many Barolo and Barbaresco. The aroma is wonderful with brick, earth, stone, cherry, verging towards a Pinot Noir style, with hints of rose and strawberry but distinctly Italian, nice fresh fruit, floral with fine spices and good grip on the finish, but supple. This is not a big wine, but it's an excellent wine.

Barolo Renato Corino, La Morra 2016

'The 2016 Barolo del Comune di La Morra is a serious wine that shows just how compelling the vintage is, even among entry-level bottlings. Black cherry, plum, spice, leather and menthol bring out darker shades of Nebbiolo in this rich, textured La Morra Barolo. This is an especially fleshy, rich style, especially among entry-level bottlings. Plush fruit and silky, polished tannins add considerable appeal.' 91 points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous.com

Indaco, Tenuta Sette Cieli, Tuscany 2014

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!

Amarone Monte Santoccio di Nicola Ferrari 2015

Our Monte Santoccio Amarone has always been a show-stopping wine, but this 2015 vintage has reached such a peak of achingly delicious, elegant, concentrated, complex gorgeousness that we can hardly find the words. And, for us, that’s a rare thing indeed. Perfect with strong cheeses.

Ombrone Cupano 2016

From the outstanding 2016 vintage; this is a Super-Tuscan, made from Cabernet and Merlot. You're getting a sort of Tuscan Pomerol, or St Emilion, but it ages with the grace of the Brunello. It’s the first vintage that has had a small amount of Cabernet Franc added, for a bit of aromatic complexity, freshness and roundness. I suspect Lionel planted Cabernet Franc after his friend, the winemaker from the great Chateau Cheval Blanc, visited. It’s a very accomplished wine, and really superb price for a wine of this quality. This vintage is special, and as usual, the wine will give huge pleasure soon after arriving. For people who have never known great wine, this is the bottle to convince them that there is such a thing, and that there is value in spending up, without spending a fortune.

Vignolo Vinding Montecarrubo 2016

Italy's finest expression of Syrah. This is gorgeous, classy, old-school in some ways - so that if you like Bordeaux, Rhone and Burgundy, you would enjoy this, yet it expresses the joy of Sicily. The terroir is in Melilli, an extinct volcano - south of Etna - with limestone, marine fossils. Made by wine legend Peter Vinding-Diers.

The first shipment has almost sold out, but we will be shipping more soon and the wine can be ordered, for temperature controlled shipment in June or July. Please email wine@swig.co.uk with any questions about magnums and older vintages or Rosso or Brunello. Ian D'Agata - Vinous "Broad-shouldered and deeply structured, with lively aromas of red and blue fruits complicated by flowers, Oriental herbs, blue and red berry flavors nicely framed by polished tannins. Dense and thick on the long finish, which features a repeating floral quality. I expect this to improve considerably, expanding nicely, as it ages in the cellar." Ian D'Agata. Tasting date: March 2020 Drinking window: 2024 - 2032 93+ (the highest mark Ian D'Agata has given Cupano) Jancis Robinson - tasted blind by Walter Speller - one of the top rated wines on the vintage Cupano 2015 Brunello di Montalcino 17+ Tasted blind.

One of the most beautiful most sensual wines we've ever drunk. 95pts - top Italian wine in TASTED Journal with Sassicaia. Beautiful vintage for Cupano Brunello. Cocao dusted nose, herbs, gentle deep and round with excellent structure. Fabulous for the cellar though a wine that you can drink now but will be wonderful from around 2016.

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

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

Frizzante Rose La Jara Organic

A totally irresistible semi-sparkling rosé from our favourite Prosecco producer, La Jara, but in this case they use a little bit of the red grape, Raboso, to give the wine its lovely pale coral colour. It is dry on the palate and bursting with fresh strawberry notes reined in by the pithy bite of pink grapefruit. We think the packaging is simply beautiful and beautifully simple and we always have a bottle in the fridge in case of visitors as it’s the perfect conversation starter. 10.5% alc. Drink now.
