Buona lettura



White under £10

1. Moncaro Verdicchio di Castelli dei Jesi

Classico 2016, Marche, Italy: Waitrose

£5.99 One of the best value wines

around, this is fresh, lively, light and pure

with some almondy, nutty characters and

hints of jasmine. Although this does not

really show you how great Verdicchio can

be, it is a lovely go-to dry white wine that

never fails to please. (Quentin Sadler)



2. Ca’ di Ponti, Grillo, IGT Terre Sicilia

2016, Italy: Stone, Vine & Sun £6.50,

ND John £5.95 Widely planted in Italy,

Grillo retains freshness and lowish

alcohol in the Mediterranean heat.

Understated melons and pears with a

subtle almond flavour. (David Timmons)


4. Soave Classico, Castel Cerino DOCG

2016, Coffele, Italy: The Wine Society

£6.75 (3l Bag-in-Box £27) Soave is

perhaps Italy’s most famous white wine

region. Pale yellow with green hints, the

aromas are fresh and welcoming.

Blossom, minerals, pear and apple are

to the fore. There’s good balance,

moderate alcohol and a soft texture



9. The Society’s Falanghina 2016,

Campania, Italy: The Wine Society

£8.50 From the region of Sannio in

Campania comes my new favourite

grape variety. Everything the modern

palate is looking for – this super

Falanghina is fresh and zesty, yet with an

enticingly round mouthfeel and lovely

floral, citrus and summer stone fruit

characters. The perfect fish wine but

intense enough to take spice, tomato

and garlic-based dishes. (Nina Cerullo)



13. Poggio Verde Frascati Superiore,

Pallavicini 2016, Italy: The Wine

Society £9.95 Refined and stylish,

aromatic, beautifully balanced,

combining some waxy lemony notes,

with apple-like acidity. Has great

presence and length. Try with a shellfish

risotto. (Neil Courtier*)



Red under £10

18. Montepulciano d’Abruzzo 2016, Italy:

Lidl £3.99 I often hear people say they

wouldn’t touch a wine costing under £5

because it couldn’t be any good. Well

here is a wine that costs under £4 and

which not only makes pleasurable

drinking but also has some authentic

Montepulciano character. The sort of

wine that would be drunk thirstily by the

carafe in Italian restaurants. (Richard

Bampfield MW)



25. Frappato di Sicilia 2016, Nicosia, Italy:

The Wine Society £9.50 A fragrant,

light-bodied soft and silky red that can

be interchanged as a white. Serve it slightly chilled or at room temperature.

Drinks well with spicy food. Sicilians

drink this wine with fish! (Michelle

Cherutti-Kowal MW)



28. Terre di Faiano Primitivo 2016, Puglia,

Italy: Waitrose £9.99 Made by the

‘Appassimento’ method which involves

drying out the grapes in the sun to

concentrate the grape sugars prior to

fermentation. A really lovely round,

velvety organic red with added richness

given to it by the sweetness of the dried

grapes used in its production. (Trudy




White £10–£25

34. St Michael-Eppan Pinot Grigio 2016,

Alto Adige, Italy: Waitrose £11.99

Produced from vineyards at over 400m

delivering both ripeness and freshness,

this wine has been aged for eight

months on lees. Aromas of fresh Comice

pear lead onto similar, well-focused

flavours with savoury notes on top and a

delicate but very well-sustained,

satisfying finish. A Pinot Grigio of

genuine merit. (Nancy Gilchrist MW)



40. Ascheri Langhe Arneis 2016, Langhe,

Italy: Marks & Spencer €19.50/£13.50

A delightful wine from a local white grape

in the North West of Italy. Intense bouquet

with honeysuckle and distinct exotic

fruits leads to a fine fruit driven palate.

Excellent fruit to acid balance brings

each of the wine’s enticing flavours to a

rich and memorable finish. A brilliant

Italian white wine! (Kevin Ecock)



42. Talamonti Trabocchetto Pecorino

Pescarese 2016, Italy: Christopher

Piper Wines £14.51 Lovely aromatics,

pink grapefruit, apricot, herbs and a whiff

of cinnamon. The mouthfeel is luxurious,

but not heavy. The acidity darts through

with zesty finesse. This is a wellstructured,

graceful and very complete

example of this lovely grape variety.

(Angela Reddin)



Red £10–£25

68. Vesevo Beneventano Aglianico 2015,

Italy: Secret Cellar £13 Deep red in

colour, with intense aromas of red

berries, vanilla and spice. Supple tannins

on the palate. A fine and affordable

example of one of Italy’s best grapes.

(David Timmons)





87. Vecchio Moro Lambrusco Grasparossa

Rinaldini, Italy: The Wine Society

£11.50 A fizzy red! Light, structural

tannins, dry and quite delicate nose.

Gentle mousse. This is an excellent

Lambrusco (forget all the sweet stuff of the

1970s and 80s). It is, most of all, fun and

THE best match for a tomato-based pizza

there is. Also ideal with salami, mozzarella

and tomato starters. (Geoff Bolton)
