Vitiano Falesco 2011
A rich, savoury and satisfying Sangiovese-dominated red from a top-notch producer in Umbria, an area of Italy we see too few wines from. A good structure, decent acidity from stainless-steel-tank ageing make this an excellent food wine – particularly for autumnal game dishes with mushrooms.
Quinta da Lagoalva, Talhão 1 Tejo, 2011
This fragrant, aromatic, easily drinkable wine is a gorgeous addition to the Wine Society’s excellent stable of medium-priced whites. Made with a combination of local grapes and given a bit of Sauvignon zip, it’s an ideal match for grilled sardines or mackerel.
Noster Nobilis Priorat 2007
A serious wine at a seriously good price here. Made really well mostly from Garnacha grapes in a first-class area, where wines mostly attract premium prices, this is a big, bold, beefy red. Buy now, drink when the weather turns cold with the first casseroles of autumn.
£7.50 (until Tuesday; normally £8.75), Asda
