30 Under $30, Benchmark Biondi-Santi at Exceptional Pricing

February 11, 2013
A Note from Sergio


Maybe you're a serious collector with many hundreds of carefully kept bottles squirreled away in a temperature-controlled room beneath your home. Or maybe you're someone with a small wine fridge tucked away in some corner of your New York City apartment. No matter who you are, if you're a real wine lover, you need three kinds of wines: wines to drink any time, wines to impress, and wines for very special occasions.


Today, I'm emphasizing that first group--wines to drink right now, on any given night. These are wines that are affordable, easy to understand, and, above all, delicious. I've chosen thirty of IWM's favorite go-to wines for today, selecting bottles from around the world. Italy is well represented, of course. Really, your affordable Italian wine cup runneth over--but so too does your affordable French, Austrian, Spanish and South American cups.


To balance out this list of easy-drinking wines, I'm delighted to offer one wine to impress: Biondi-Santi 2006 Brunello di Montalcino, a wine that it'd be a sin to open for at least another decade--or four. And I'm also happy to offer Borgo dei Santi Pinot Grigio, a flinty, aromatic white that IWM alone sells in the US. It's a delight, especially at less than $20.


I believe it's important to take some time every day to celebrate life. These wines only make it easier.

Fischer Rose 2011 750ml
Price: $23.45

Austrian rosé has appealing purity, transparency and aromatics that stem from its Alpine terroir, and this ’11 rosé from Zweigelt embodies this ideal. This dry Danube Rosé shows its altitude in its structure, and its stainless-steel vinification in its clear, pure palate. Salmon pink in the glass, this mono-varietal Zweigelt, an indigenous varietal that is Austria’s most popular grape, is fresh and juicy, laden with strawberries and herbs, touched with minerality and a zippy acidity. more info
