A $10 Red Made By a Tuscan Superstar

2012 Quattro Mani Montepulciana d’Abruzzo © Domaine Select Wine Estates

Here, wine experts reveal their favorite bottles costing less than $17. Many of the selections are lesser known but absolutely worth the search.

Who: Emily Kaiser Thelin, Writer and F&W Contributor

What: 2012 Quattro Mani Montepulciana d’Abruzzo

Why: “This wine is often sold for $8.99 or 9.99 at my favorite grocery store, Monterey Market ,” says Thelin. “It's juicy, lightly spicy and fruity, and just tannic enough to go with practically anything—from roast chicken to seared pork chops to salmon to many a beany vegetarian dish.” She also likes this little bonus: The wine is made by Tuscan superstar Attilio Pagli.
