ALLEGRINI VALPOLICELLA – Veneto – £14.20 – A fantastic wine from a fantastic producer. Ruby red in colour, with purplish-blue highlights. Fragrant fruit with prominent notes of dark cherries are echoed by fresher hints of pepper and aromatic herbs.

GRAN SASSO PECORINO Alta Quota – Abruzzo – £14.60 – Light yellow-gold in colour, it has a lightly spiced nose from the partial oak ageing which gives way to a fine, floral and ripe citrus fruit character on the palate. It shows a good length with ripe pear characters on the finish.

PONTE DEL DIAVOLO SAUVIGNON – Friuli Venezia Giulia – £10.20 – A classic in terms of Friuli Sauvignon Blanc. The perfumes are fresh, with notable finesse and complexity. The nose displays a lovely apricot character and a subtle minerality.

VIGNETI DEL SALENTO PRIMITIVO I Muri – Puglia – £11.20 – Deep ruby red colour with violet reflections. This wine has red berry fruit perfumes with a hint of spice. Full-bodied with firm tannins, this wine is well balanced with lots of ripe fruit flavours.
