Arianna Occhipinti, Il Frappato IGT Terre Siciliane

Nicolas Reau, Pompois Rouge

Baglio Rosso 'Nero d'Avola' - Cantine Rallo, Terre Siciliane IGP

Deeply coloured with intense aromas of black cherries and blueberries, pure cocoa powder and spices. This is full and lushly textured with a toothsome salinity on the finish. Delicious freshness and drinkability. The Baglio Rosso is 100% Nero d’Avola from certified organic vineyards. Short maceration of a week of whole bunch (40%) and destemmed (60%) grapes. Wild yeast, no sulphur, no fining, no filtration.

A baglio is a a courtyard at the centre of a walled, fortified estate, typical of rural Sicily. A seemingly simple word to us Anglophones, its meaning opens up the richness and complexity of Sicilian history and culture: Spanish and Arabic influences, the wealth generated by agriculture and trading across the Mediterranean as well as the ever-present banditry forced by the grinding poverty of the mezzadria system.

Pierre et Catherine Breton, Bourgueil 'La Dilettante'

Bourgueil 'La Dilettante' comes from a plot planted on gravelly soils. After 3 weeks carbonic maceration, the wine is transferred to 2 year-old oak barrels where both fermentation and malolactic take place. The result is a delicious Cabernet Franc, juicy, lively and fruit-driven.

Antonio Camillo, Maremma Rosso 'Principio' Toscana IGP

Principio is made from organically grown, forty year old Ciliegiolo vines. Bright ruby in colour, yet very pale in intensity, this shows fresh, bright red cherry, raspberry and blueberry, fruit with violet top notes. Ripe (ripeness is rarely an issue in the Maremma), but dry and light-to-medium-bodied with zesty acids and minerality and firm tannins on the finish. This is a refreshing foil to rustic, hearty dishes like bean or meat stews, or to hard cheeses.
