WIN A MAGNUM OF CHAMPAGNE BOLLINGER

Andrew Jefford ‘You may be suspicious of celebrity wines...’

IN MY GLASS THIS MONTH

ITALY • A wealth of grapes, wines, wonderful landscapes and regional cuisines provide a lifetime of Italian inspiration

In rarified air • Growing wines in Italy’s hilliest regions is complicated , expensive and demands huge effort. So why do high-altitude producers carry on, and what makes their wines well worth seeking out?

Combatting erosion

High praise: Aldo Fiordelli’s 12 from Italy’s elevated vines

Message from a bottle • Exclusive: Rock star Sting and his wife Trudie Styler reveal the wines that have played a major part in their life and influenced the winemaking at their Tuscan estate, Il Palagio

STING AND TRUDIE’S PICK OF THEIR OWN WINES

GREAT TUSCAN VINTAGES TO DRINK NOW • Each growing season seems to bring different but equally challenging conditions in Tuscany: it’s rarely easy. We explain how producers succeeded in the five most significant recent vintages, and pick four standout wines from each to try

TOP 20 BUYS: SOAVE • It’s still the perennial summertime thirst-quencher, but thanks to its rich and varied terroirs the wines of this well-known Veneto region offer impressive diversity and complexity, too

BRILLIANT BARBERA • A hugely flexible grape variety, producing approachable yet often complex and food-friendly wines from diverse terroirs

Barbera: great recent vintages

Standout producers

Michaela Morris selects 10 top Piedmont Barbera reds

Sicily, then and now • The volcanic island’s path to international wine success has been somewhat rocky, but has changed course in recent years thanks to a handful of farsighted families and wineries

Capalbo’s pick: the soul of Sicily in 10 delicious wines

BAROLO 2013: A RETROSPECTIVE • The 2013 vintage was very strong for Barolo, despite variable conditions across the region, and while the wines continue to evolve, most are drinking extremely well now

Brook’s choice: 20 top Barolo 2013s to seek out

The joy of learning • Enjoying a glass of wine is an experience that’s enriched through knowledge. Wherever you are on your wine journey, there are resources to assist you

Resources

Distilled • Your guide to the latest trends in spirits and cocktails

FIVE OF THE BEST: GRAPPAS

A world of FLAVOUR • Gin is not just British; it’s made all around the globe, from Australia to India to Venezuela. Here’s a selection with a distinctive local character

SEA BASS BAKED IN SALT • The River Cafe in west London champions simple Italian cooking and seasonal ingredients. Who better to match a superb fish dish with the perfect Italian white?

The wines to match
