Bright pale gold. High-toned peach, pineapple and sweet spice aromas. Super-ripe and sweet, showing a late-harvest quality, but as glyceral as this is, there’s also terrific lift and acidity to the candied pineapple and ripe stone fruit flavors. The creamy finish is broad and very long. This is a dessert in itself but will match well with anything involving blue cheese or bottarga. Drinking window: 2016 – 2018. (Ian d’Agata)

 From one of the masters of this southern Italian grape variety comes this bold, rich red. Fresh black cherry fruit and fragrant spice aromas lead into dark chocolate notes, with plush cherry and blackberry flavours partially hidden behind the tannic grip. The whole entity is lifted by a clean, punchy acidity that cleanses the palate like drinking ice cold water on a hot day. (James Button)

This is pure sunshine in a bottle. Donnafugata’s SurSur grillo — an indigenous white grape grown throughout Sicily — is straightforward and simple on the one hand and positively brilliant on the other, showing bright fruit notes that are forward and juicy with tremendous persistence through the finish.

Pale straw. Lovely aromatic notes of lychee, white pepper, cinnamon and white flowers. Bright but richly textured, showing sneaky concentration and lovely balance to the tropical fruit and floral flavors. Finishes very long and clean, showing an enticingly spicy sweet and sour component. Knockout wine. Today, Lighea is one of Donnafugata’s best wines, yet it has had a long and checkered history: it was originally made with Müller-Thurgau, then it was turned into a Zibibbo, Inzolia, and Cataratto Comune blend, and finally, since the 2009 vintage, it has been 100 percent Zibibbo. Donnafugata decided to go 100 percent Zibibbo once it planted Moscato di Alessandria on Pantelleria at higher altitudes (400 meters above sea level), in a much cooler microclimate ideal for making fresher, vibrant dry wines. Drinking window: 2016 – 2018. (Ian d’Agata)

Pale straw. Intense melon, lemon and pear on the bright, very fruity nose. Then more ripe orchard fruit in the mouth, along with hints of custard cream and a saline bent. Lively, harmonious acidity on the long, juicy, and surprisingly spicy finish. Anthilia is always a great buy, but this 2015 is a knockout effort. Anthilia is the name in Latin of a mountain located behind the winery (the Italian name of which is Entella). Mainly Cataratto varieties and other local grapes. Drinking window: 2016 – 2017. (Ian d’Agata)
