Producer: Sartarelli
: $9
Occasion: Go-to wine for a quiet night at home.

Sartarelli is one of my go-to wines, and while they have several different bottlings (some of which can get a bit expensive), their entry-level Verdicchio is an instant classic. The wine is refreshing and racy. On the palate, you'll find pear, green apple and lemon with a nicely understated mineral backbone. I almost can't recommend this wine enough. It would still be a great value at double the price.
