Our Favorite Italian Wines for Every Budget

Food & Wine
This week at our free weekly wine tasting, we’re featuring a curated selection of fine Italian wines for every budget. If you only have $10 to spend on wine this weekend, we’ve got one for you! If today was payday and you want to splurge, we’ve got one for you!
Keep scrolling to learn more about these beauties, and as always, if you can’t make the tasting in person, you can still snag the deals online!
First up is our “splurge” – though in the realm of wine splurges, this one is pretty affordable, and on sale for under $43. The Damijan Prelit Italian red is painstakingly crafted by its winemaker, Damijan Podversic. The nose is rich and layered, with cacao, smoke, and spices. The palate mirrors that structure, with a delicious balance of fruit, acidity, and tannins. There’s a slight earthy tone that transports you back to the terraced vineyard, with Podversic bottling wines by the light of the waning moon.
Next is another fine Italian red. The Kaltern Pfarrhof is a total steal at under $18/bottle – it’ll be one of your new favorites. The nose is like a freshly picked berry patch, full of strawberry, cherry, and raspberry aromas. The flavor is elegant, with an abundance of tannins that lead to a long, satisfying finish.
If you want a little sparkle in your life, definitely pick up a case of the Medici sparkling red. At $10 a bottle, it’s definitely in your budget! Rated 91 points by reviewer James Suckling, you can’t miss out on this one. It’s dry, fresh, and harmonious – not one of those cloying, overly sweet sparkling wines. Light and lively, it matches perfectly with your summer dinners on the patio.
And finally, if you’re in the mood for a good white, we’ve got you covered. The Langhe Arnes white is a perfect springtime wine for sipping in the park on a romantic picnic. Its fruitiness is well-balanced by hints of chamomile. The flavor is bright and lively – like a beautiful spring afternoon!
We hope to see you Saturday from 3-6 for our free tasting! If you can’t make it, you can always shop our weekly specials online!
