The Sunday Times

"I would be lying if I said I had nothing against Italian Pinot Grigio," admits Joanna Simon. However, you'll be pleased to know the Sunday Times critic has "better things to do than rant about a dreary wine". This is partly because there are many more impressive, if lesser-known, Italian varieties on which to focus, she continues. Among these are grapes such as Arneis, Fiano, Falaghina, Grechetto, Favorita and Peccorino. Continuing in this vein, Simon recommends the 2007 Fiano Finest (6.13, Tesco) for its "floral aromas" and the 2007 Roero Arneis Marco Porello (9.99, Majestic) which is "lively and lingering with sappy pear and apple flavours".
