Giada De Laurentiis Loves These Organic Italian Wines—and They Start at Just $15

Cheers to drinking organic! Leah Goggins August 20, 2021 Each product we feature has been independently selected and reviewed by our editorial team. If you make a purchase using the links included, we may earn commission. We love learning about ways that drinking wine can give us a healthful boost, from keeping us in high spirits to supporting our cardiovascular health.

Umbria & Lazio: Italy’s Underdogs

Umbria & Lazio: Italy’s Underdogs

From a geographical and varietal point of view, Umbria and Lazio make strange bedfellows, yet they share one thing that keeps them grouped together in my mind: they are the two Italian regions that receive significantly less credit than they deserve. When we think of Umbria, there are only two or three producers that most consumers can recall. In addition, Sagrantino, the red grape Umbria is known for, tends to intimidate people because of its imposing structure. ... In an attempt to make Sagrantino more palatable for the average consumer or international wine lover, the majority of winemakers began to...

GREAT VALUE WINES: 8 PROSECCOS FOR UNDER $25

GREAT VALUE WINES: 8 PROSECCOS FOR UNDER $25

Monday, August 16, 2021 8 Tasting Notes As much as wine people love indulging in the sparkling effervescence of great Champagnes – from uncorking to sipping to delighting in the bubbles – younger connoisseurs aren’t likely to spend $50 to appreciate the delicate beads and yeasty, brioche nuance that come with such expense. Instead, they usually embrace the more affordable and equally bubbly Prosecco, which is straightforward, versatile, refreshing and, most important, friendly on the purse and wallet. In case you didn’t know, you can easily use Prosecco as the base for your summer Aperol Spritz, making for a fun,...

GREAT VALUE WINES: 8 PRIORAT FOR UNDER $40

GREAT VALUE WINES: 8 PRIORAT FOR UNDER $40

Monday, August 9, 2021 8 Tasting Notes Defined by old-vine Mediterranean varieties, the tiny wine-growing region of Priorat in northeastern Spain rapidly rose to international acclaim in the late ‘90s and made a name for itself producing brooding, tarry, spicy and minerally attractive wines charged with concentration and fine tannins dialed into the fruit – from the powerful carignan (locally known as samso), bright grenache, spicy syrah and sometimes even from dense cabernet sauvignon and merlot. Unsurprisingly, yield from the poor, schist soils in the dry, sun-drenched terraced landscapes of Catalonia is low, and adding in the high production costs...
