Giorgio Comotti, Il Palagione, San Gimignano, Italy

Giorgio Comotti owned a number of driving schools in Piedmont in and around Turin. But he had a dream (see, it's not just confined to Brits) to own land and make wine in Tuscany. For many years he commuted from north to south at weekends, but now he is firmly established with 10 hectares of vines and olive groves, all farmed organically, a well-equipped cellar and a superb B & B. His land lies just south of San Gimignano and east of Volterra.

Giorgio is a charming, open and convivial soul, and a wonderful host. Here are bright, modern style wines of dramatic vivacity and punch. Both his reds and, more surprisingly, his Vernaccias, age very well.
