Agricola Querciabella

2016 Chianti Classico Riserva, Querciabella, Tuscany

Dry | Red | Still

Only made in the best vintages, the 2016 Chianti Classico Riserva from Querciabella is a really beautiful bottling from this stunning estate. The product of three single vineyards, it’s currently pretty reserved, but with notes of fresh cherries, wild roses, and a hint of rosemary. It’s a simply wonderful wine.

2015 Camartina, Querciabella, Tuscany

Impériale Red | Still

The 2015 Camartina is an astonishing super-Tuscan. A blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Sangiovese, from high altitude vineyards in Greve-in-Chianti, it’s a wine that astonishes with its elegance, finesse, and purity. Notes of morello cherry, blackcurrant, and wild flowers, with an intensely structured core, and a long, savoury finish. Outstanding, a real tour de force.

Critic Score
96/100

2017 Solaia, Antinori, IGT Tuscany

Dry | Red | Still

Coming from a single vineyard on the Tignanello estate, Solaia takes its name from the sunny nature of vineyard. The 2017 is opulent and exotic, with loads of spice and a savoury, mineral finish.

Young: 2025 - 2045

2018 Cervaro, Castello Della Sala, Antinori, IGT Umbria

Dry | White | Still

A blend of Chardonnay and Grechetto, the 2018 Cervaro has lovely richness to the fruit, with notes of hazelnut and a hint of honey. You feel the Umbrian sun here, but it's all in balance.

Ready: 2021 - 2030

2017 Tignanello, Antinori, Tuscany

Dry | Red | Still

One of the great Super-Tuscans, in 2017 Tignanello is intense and structured, with notes of wild herbs, baked earth, and cassis. There's a silkiness to the finish, which lasts an age.

Azienda Agricola 499

2015 Langhe Freisa Coste dei Fre, Azienda Agricola 499, Piedmont

Dry | Red | Still

A single vineyard Freisa, and a step up, this is a brilliant wine from this tiny estate. Wild hedgerow and flowers soar from the glass, with incredible structure and length. Mineral, precise, and very long, this is a delight. And it ages brilliantly: older bottles we tried blew us away.

Ready: 2021 - 2028

2017 Langhe Freisa, Azienda Agricola 499, Piedmont

Dry | Red | Still

Freisa is a forgotten grape variety of the Langhe. High up in the commune of Camo, Mario and Gabriele are showing just how good it can be. Floral and fresh, with elements of red berry fruit, some herbal character, and also nicely grippy tannins, this is a wonderful alternative to a Langhe Nebbiolo.

Ready: 2021 - 2023
Azienda Agricola Lalù

2019 Langhe Nebbiolo, Azienda Agricola Lalù, Piedmont

Dry | Red | Still

A blend of two declassified Nebbiolo da Barolo vineyards: Bussia Brovi in Monforte d’Alba & Roncaglie in La Morra. This has plenty of volume, with delicate fruit, notes of rose petal and plenty of minerality on the finish. A lovely example of what's to come.

Ready: 2021 - 2028

2019 Barbera d'Alba, Azienda Agricola Lalù, Piedmont

Dry | Red | Still

Just 2000 bottles were made of this, from Monforte vineyards near to Monchiero. Dark and juicy, with blackcurrent and a hint of tar, there's lively acidity and a very pure and charming finish. This is so delicious. Bravo.

Ready: 2021 - 2026
Azienda Agricola Valentini

2017 Cerasuolo, Valentini, Montepulciano d'Abruzzo

Dry | Red | Still

Lovely concentration and ripeness to the 2017 Cerasuolo, with just a hint of fava bean and blood orange on the nose, and hedgerow fruit on the palate. There's a depth here that comes from the vintage, but it's in no way overblown. Lovely.

Ready: 2021 - 2027

2018 Cerasuolo, Valentini, Montepulciano d'Abruzzo

Dry | Rosé | Still

Vibrant in colour, there's a complex nose of pomegranate, iron oxide, and bright, wild strawberry fruit. There's just a lick of tannins, and a very savoury, focussed finish. Joyful now, but with the bones to age, too.

Ready: 2021 - 2028

2015 Trebbiano d'Abruzzo, Valentini, Abruzzo

Dry | White | Still

This is a real benchmark white of Italy, that ages spectacularly. Mineral, intense, with plenty of grip and palate weight, it's a remarkable wine. Buy this, and keep if for a few years.

Ready: 2021 - 2035

Barone di Villagrande

2017 Contrada Villagrande, Etna Bianco Superiore, Barone di Villagrande, Sicily

White | Still

More shy on the nose, but on the palate there’s incredible depth and intensity. Really powerful and grippy, very wild, with notes of orange, peaches and apricots, and such a mineral undercurrent. The best of Etna.

Ready: 2021 - 2028

2018 Etna Rosso, Barone di Villagrande, Sicily

Red | Still

Delicate and herbal on the nose, with fresh lavender as well as plenty of pomegranate and red berry fruit. The tannins sneak up on you: there’s an almost nebbiolo element with that grip and a tar and roses element. But the bright, pale colour and volcanic undertones give it away.

Ready: 2021 - 2028

2017 Contrada Villagrande Etna Rosso, Barone di Villagrande, Sicily

Red | Still

Wow. What purity and focus, and also such silky tannins. This is a brilliant red. Notes of pomegranate and rose petal, and lots of blood orange add to the core of red fruit. The tannins are talc-like, and there’s such focus on the palate. This is outstanding.

Ready: 2021 - 2032

2019 Etna Bianco Superiore, Barone di Villagrande

White | Still

More shy on the nose, but on the palate there’s incredible depth and intensity. Really powerful and grippy, very wild, with notes of orange, peaches and apricots, and such a mineral undercurrent. The best of Etna.

Bruno Giacosa

2018 Barbera d'Alba, Bruno Giacosa, Piedmont

Red | Still

Juicy and fine boned, with notes of orange and a hint of ripe beef tomato, the 2018 Barbera is a lovely wine. It's drinking well out the gate, but will age nicely, too.

Ready: 2021 - 2028

2019 Dolcetto d'Alba, Bruno Giacosa, Piedmont

Dry | Red | Still

Sourced from across the Barbaresco region, from trusted suppliers, this is a wonderfully fragrant example of the region's everyday grape variety.

Ready: 2021 - 2025

2018 Nebbiolo d'Alba Valmaggiore, Bruno Giacosa, Piedmont

Dry | Red | Still

This comes from a single site in the Roero region, giving bright fruit and silky tannins. Giacosa's mastery of Nebbiolo is well known, and this shows their whole talent.

Ready: 2021 - 2028

2019 Roero Arneis, Bruno Giacosa, Piedmont

White | Still

Ian D'agata has written, "I have long thought that the Arneis was by far Giacosa’s most underrated wine", and this is a zesty, fresh example from one of the grape variety's staunchest defenders

Ready: 2021 - 2024

2017 Barbaresco Asili, Bruno Giacosa, Piedmont

Dry | Red | Still

Wonderfully fresh and vibrant, particularly for a 2017, this has notes of cinnamon and freshly cut flowers swirling from the glass. A finessed and classy Barbaresco, that's surprisingly ready to go.

Young: 2022 - 2037
