Here's another winning Australian Shiraz. Dense and chewy, with zingy acidity to support the ripe blackberry, cherry and white pepper flavors, which linger effortlessly along with firm tannins on the finish. Best from 2003 through 2009. 25,000 cases made. —Harvey Steiman
Here's a tasty white from Italy's Campania region. Pretty and subtle aromas of peaches and cream. Medium-bodied, clean and creamy-textured, with pleasant fruit and a fresh finish. Drink now. 12,000 cases made. —James Suckling
Greco di Tufo is another grape that you might not have heard of, but it can produce delicious, unique flavors. Look for this version from Campania's qualitative leader, Feudi di San Gregorio. Subtle aromas of lilac, honey and pears, with hints of peaches. —James Suckling
Those looking for a change of pace from Chardonnay might want to try this Fiano from southern Italy. Lovely aromas of peaches and minerals follow through to a medium body, with good acidity and a creamy, appley aftertaste. Delicious. Drink now through 200
Here's another wine that should help convert Chilean non-believers. Subtle smoke weaves through the polished plum and blackberry flavors. Sweet, medium-weight fleshy texture and juicy finish. Delicious. Good to see this wine living up to expectations. 60 —James Molesworth
