San Silvestro Piemonte Barbera 'Ottone 1' is a deeply-coloured unoaked Italian red with soft tannins and vibrant cherry flavours. This wine is a great value, easy-drinking alternative to the more expensive wines made in the nearby Barbera d'Alba and Barbera d'Asti DOCs.

Primitivo 'Il Pumo' Salento San Marzano is a spicy, unoaked wine, from Apulia's signature red grape.

Dogajolo Rosso IGT Toscana Carpineto - the Carpineto estate affectionately refers to Dogajolo as its "baby super-Tuscan".

Fruit driven, seductive and youthful, with aromas of red berries, laced with cinnamon and spice. A medium bodied wine with supple tannins and ripe red cherries, red pepper and exotic spice on the lingering finish.
