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 Whitney A. We make silly videos together and she’s basically the best.
WHITNEY’S MARCH PICK:
2013 Le Cantine di Indie Langhe Rosso
$13, Domaine LA
Around this time of year, it’s not quite spring (a few more months til the new rosé arrives!) and we haven’t yet shaken off winter. It’s an opportunity to still tuck into a big glass of red and watch some old movies. This Italian blend of Barbera, Dolcetto and Nebbiolo is the perfect addition to a pizza night situation. It has lovely juicy cherry fruit, a tiny touch of dusty tannin and that classic Italian tangy acidity – a kind of wine you don’t need to fuss over, but that drinks well beyond it’s price tag.
