I haven't worked out why it's naked, but it's dry and crisp with blackcurrant leaf aromas and gooseberry undertones.

Under a Tenner: 2004 Chianti Classico Villa Cafaggio

Improved since the arrival of consultant Stefano Chioccoli, this sangiovese has sweet and sour cherry fruitiness.

Elegant Hardy annual with aromas of marzipan and apricot cut with intense fruit flavours. £16.99, Philglas & Swiggot (London SW11 and Richmond; 020-7924 4494)
