From Santa Carolina, one of our favorite vineyards in Chile, comes a beautiful merlot with a juiciness you’ll immediately appreciate. We had their 2015 vintage, which you’ll find at wine shops going for under $10. You simply can not get a more luscious red from Chile for the price.
Invetro, from Renieri Vineyard, is a strong and sassy red wine. It’s serious when you need it to be, and a pleasure, for around $17-$18. Consider it your entry into the world of “Super Tuscans,” if you’ve ever wondered what that was or wanted to try an affordable wine in the category. Invetro has a beauty to it that made us pause and appreciate the care in which it was made.
Wondering which sparkler to drink as the ball drops on New Year’s Eve? These are the sparkling wines we loved this year.
