Win a case of top Italian brand Ravelli

Ravelli offers consumers the chance to taste classic examples from Italy's key DOCs under one brand umbrella.

Launched by Thierry's in 2006, Ravelli is the fastest growing Italian brand in the UK, according to Nielsen figures for the year to Novem ber 2007.

"The concept of sourcing wine from so many different regions was an original one and Ravelli is still the only Italian brand able to offer the consumer such a wide choice and Italian experience," a spokeswoman says.

Prosecco Raboso from the Veneto region is a classic choice for summer drinking, whether indoors or out. A 50/50 blend of Prosecco and Raboso, this wine has an attractive strawberry nose which is carried through on the palate. It is available from Tesco, priced

£6.99.

Other wines in the Ravelli portfolio include Prosecco Spumante, Bianco and Rosso delle Venezie, Valpolicella, Pinot Grigio, Pinot Grigio Blush, Soave Colli Scaligeri, Montepulciano, Montepulciano Cerasuolo, Frascati, Chianti, Chianti Riserva and, the latest addition to the range, a Bardolino. The wines retail from £4.29 to £7.99 and can be found in Tesco, Waitrose and Sainsbury's.

Talking terroir

When Bordeaux was in fashion, it seemed almost logical that we should fetishise winemakers. Here were people responsible for brilliant acts of blending, across large estates and multiple grape varieties, including superstars such as cabernet sauvignon and merlot. These days, fashion has moved on and pinot noir is ascendant. As a result, the star of the winemaker has fallen and we find ourselves following a new star in the sky: terroir.
