Wine: Something for the weekend

 

NIGHT IN

2011 Tesco Finest Soave Classico

Unusually good soave for the price, an intense dry Italian white with ripe peachy scents and delicious apricoty fruit –gluggily juicy and moreishly dry. £7.99, Tesco

DINNER PARTY

2008 Rioja Campo Aldea Gracian

Astonishingly aromatic, this pure, distinctive graciano-based red has a classic rioja feel to it, thanks to its dark fruit and gamey undertones. £12.99, Marks & Spencer

SPLASH OUT

2010 Cape Mentelle Cabernet Merlot, Margaret River, Western Australia

There's a rich core of cassis fruit behind the smoky and cinnamon-spicy fragrance of this Cape Mentelle blend. £14.99, Majestic
