WHITNEY’S MONTHLY WINE PICK: ALWAYS UNDER $15, AND ALWAYS DELICIOUS
Choosing a wine can be an intimidating task for the uninitiated, but any seasoned wine drinker knows that good wine doesn’t always mean expensive wine. That’s where Whitney comes in. She’s here to help you pick a delicious bottle at an even more delicious price.
If you don’t already know her, I’d like to introduce all of you to my dear friend, Whitney Adams. A fabulous sommelier living in Los Angeles, she just launched her wine accessories brand and online shop, Bottle Stock, and blogs about wine and other drinking adventures at Brunellos Have More Fun. We make silly videos together and she’s basically the best.
WHITNEY’S JANUARY PICK:
2011 Morelli Sangiovese
$15, Domaine LA
This is one of my favorite weeknight wines! Perfect for when you feel like ordering in a crispy, warm pizza and cuddling up with a movie. Made from organically grown Sangiovese, it’s bursting with juicy cherry fruit and is aged in stainless steel (rather than oak barrels), so it’s fresh and bright. I have yet to meet a person that doesn’t fall in love with this wine. It’s so versatile and cheerful.
