Affordable Dinner Party Wines! Six Under $40 Italian Gems
October 18, 2018
A Note from Sergio

Italian life moves at its own pace. When I'm in the cities, I notice it less--Rome and Milan seem to have adopted a schedule and a style of life that would be familiar to New Yorkers. But I spend most of my time outside big cities, and rural Italians still live according to ancient practices. Lunch is often the biggest meal of the day. Businesses close between 1:00 and 3:00 p.m. Your plate will reflect what your region grows, and your glass will be filled with wine from down the road. Sunday and holidays are family time. Aperitivi marks the shift from your job to your home, from public self to private self, from work life to home life. And dinnertime is sacred, a moment to pause and enjoy the bounty before you with the people you love.

Today, I'm very pleased to present six wines that reflect Italian life--indeed, I'd go so far as to say that if you pour them in the right ways, these wines might help you replicate Italian life. Pop the Cima da Conegliano Prosecco with bruschetta rubbed with garlic and topped with chopped tomatoes and olive oil, small dishes of goat cheese and olives, or prosciutto and white beans. Pour Fontodi's Meriggio with grilled shrimp drizzled with olive oil, set atop fresh fettuccine. Enjoy Aldo Conterno's Langhe Rosso or Talenti's Rosso di Montalcino with pasta Bolognese or lamb stew. And open up bottles of Antinori's Botrosecco or Barbera with roasted meats, osso bucco, or tajarin pasta. We Italian know a thing or two about feasts, and today's six affordable dinner-time wines will make your food sing and delight your guests.
