The world of Italian wines can seem a bit intimidating at first, but that doesn’t mean their price tags are too! We’ve rounded up five of our favorite beyond-affordable picks if you want to enjoy an exceptional glass without breaking the bank.
Are you a Lambrusco fan? If so, Lini 910 Lambrusco Rosso will be right up your alley. It starts with a nice burst of berries and finishes dry and crisp with a slight effervescence. It pairs well with any pasta or pizza you have on the table. ($15)
From Northern Italy, Suavia Soave Classico is bright, crisp, and zesty—similar to a Sauvignon Blanc. This bottle perfectly complements rich Italian seafood pastas, scallops, and even risotto. ($16)
Whether you pack it in your cooler or sip it on the porch, Bollicini Rosé was made for summer. This delightful sparkling wine is light and fresh, with fragrant notes of strawberries and red berries. ($13 for a 4-pack)
Did you know that wine can be organic? It’s true, the grapes in this Lunaria Patches Montepulciano are organically grown in the Abruzzo region of Italy. This red is dry and full-bodied, with notes of bright red fruits and warm baking spices that pair well with pizza, roasted pork, or cheese and charcuterie. ($15)
Nothing screams “party” like a glass full of bubbles! Mia Bella Moscato D’Asti White Wine is bright and refreshing, with notes of nectarine, honeysuckle, and peaches—perfect for toasting to any occasion. ($13)
