2005 La Capannuccia Chianti Rufina, Tuscany

( £14.99 down to £11.24, 12.5%, Sainsbury's )

Always good to see an Italian wine with some bottle age on a supermarket shelf, especially when it’s as good as this Sangiovese-based Tuscan red. It’s made in a modernised traditional style, with lovely floral, tealeafy flavours, fresh acidity and savoury, complex tannins. Drink it with a good winter stew and it will taste even better.
