Top 10 sparkling wines of 2018

10 Cuvée Aurora, Alta Langa DOC, Piedmont, Italy, 2013

While Italy is predominantly know for Prosecco when it comes to sparkling wine in export markets, the country in fact has a huge wealth of fizzy options, and an increasing number at the more premium end, using the traditional method of fizz-making (where the bubbles are created in the bottle, rather than a sealed tank, like Prosecco).

Among these latter upmarket options is this brilliant and good-value fizz from famous Brunello-maker Banfi.

Coming from its Piemonte estate cellars in Strevi, this traditional-method sparkler uses Pinot and Chardonnay from the Alta Langa DOC, and 30 months lees contact, to produce a vanilla- and berry-scented, creamy-textured fizz.

Approximate retail price: £15
