Italy | Spain

From the cool, crisp whites of the North to the rich, sun-drenched reds of the South, Italy is a country full of great wines, characterful grape varieties and iconic producers. From the North, Pieropan's Soave, Ca' dei Frati's Lugana and Allegrini’s Valpolicella all win best in class. In Tuscany, Peter Femfert's Fattoria Nittardi Estates produce stunning wines ; from the South Vignetti de Salento create wonderful, characterful Zinfandels and Primitivos and in Sicily the Cantine Paolini Co-operative make some of the best value Frappatto and Pinot Grigio around.

Further and further, Spain reveals historic, interesting wines that deserve a place on our list. Characterful, fish friendly wines of Bodegas Gaintza's Txakoli and Pazo Torrado's Rias Baixas Albarino a perfect partners for seafood and the Rueda of Bodegas Naia are among the best of the region. Classic Rioja's are sourced from Bodegas El Coto and Bodegas Martinez Lacuesta. Bodegas Borsao provides us with amazing Garnacha and first class Monastrell is seen from Bodegas Castano. Sherry is to be found in our Sherry | Port | Madeira page.
