This weekend, pour on the romance with our selection of wine, fizz and cocktails.

The Full Fifteen from Andrew McPherson, 13% abv
We liked this South Eastern Aussie tipple that combines red wine with fizz. Shiraz’s ripe blackberry and liquorice notes mingle with Cabernet’s dense cassis, succulent Merlot and Durif’s spiciness. Best drunk on its own. £10.99 from Laithwaite’s Wine – see

Rosso Nobile al Cioccolata from Italy, 10% abv. A heavenly double temptation noble red wine, intense dark berries and soft vanilla notes – nuances of creamy chocolate! Pair with chocolate, chocolate desert or, drink on its own. This versatile drink adds the ultimate indulgence to your evening. Available from Tesco, or see

Gavi Exquisite Collection 2013, 12% abv.
Part of the superb Italian range. Its tangy lemon hits palate and the nose vibrates with nuttiness. A refreshing partner for shellfish and pasta dishes at £5.49. From Aldi (see below for link).

Valdobbiadene Prosecco Superiore 11% abv.
This prosecco has the usual fresh lemon vibrancy but with a floral finish. Light and happy, it can be drunk at any time of the day or night. £7.49 from Aldi on
