Everyday Italian wines are pretty popular at my house. On a casual night in, we love to make pastas and pizzas from scratch. I am always on the lookout for nicely priced wines to pair with our Italian fare.
One of our go-to, everyday Italian wines is Vallevo Montepulciano d’Abruzzo. It is a meaty wine with tastes of dark fruit and black olives. Balanced and well-made for the price. It pairs well with simple pasta dishes and also holds it own against grilled meats. I am thinking pasta with a wild boar sauce would be a great combo! (13.5% alcohol, $9)
