2010 Filosur Cabernet Sauvignon, Argentina
From Andeluna Cellars, based in Mendoza's high-altitude Uco Valley, this is a vivid cabernet whose cassis and cherry-fruit succulence is supported by an appetisingly savoury freshness. £9.99, buy 2 = £7.49, Majestic Wine
2009 Langhe Nebbiolo
While you wait for the barolo, the zingy fresh fruit in Andrea and Fabio Oberto's more affordable, spice-laden nebbiolo (same grape) makes this Piedmontese rosso a joy. £14.95, £13.95 bottle/case, Lea & Sandeman (020-7244 0522)
