Top 10 wines in the US press

2011 Terre di Monteforte Valpolicella Superiore

20140904054018Lettie Teague, writing for the Wall Street Journal, picked five easy-drinking reds from the Veneto region in Italy, many of which are “uncomplicated, pleasurable, and reasonable”, said Teague.

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
