2009 Baglio Rosso Nero d'Avola

2009 Crasto Douro Red, Quinta do Crasto
Wonderfully aromatic and fresh Douro blend of the major Port varieties with succulent and deliciously exuberant dark-cherry and damson-plum fruit quality and a fine balancing freshness. £9.99 or buy 2 Portuguese wines £8.49, Majestic
2008 Barone Ricasoli Rocca Guicciarda Riserva Chianti Classico
A well-crafted modern chianti classico blend of mainly sangiovese with a satiny sheen of spice and berry aromas and voluptuously soft-centred black cherry, nicely polished by oak, with a lively bite of savoury acidity. £16.99, Sainsbury's
