Night in

2008 Asda Extra Special Chianti Classico Riserva

It's well worth taking advantage of the current £2-off offer on this pasta basher from Castellani Spa, whose sangiovese fruit is tinged with savoury cherry fruit and herby undertones. £6.98, Asda

Dinner party

2010 Château La Fleur de Haute-Serre

This is a Malbec-based, fragrant, blackberry-hearted blend with a twist of liquorice spice, firm grip softened by merlot and enlivened by appetisingly savoury freshness. £10.49, Waitrose

Splash out

2010 Pernand-Vergelesses Les Combottes Blanc

All the complex nuttiness you're looking for in a Côte de Beaune white burgundy with a seductive fruit richness that's transformed into a chalky dry, mineral freshness. £26, M&S
