Focusing on Valpolicella, Teague picked this example from Terre di Monteforte, which she said was “easily the best buy of the tasting”.

“This is a juicy, ripe red with just enough stuffing to stand up to barbecue and lively enough to drink on its own”, said Teague. “It’s one of several wines made by a consortium of growers who turn out a well-regarded Soave as well.”

Price: $10
