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

Who: Olivier Flosse, wine director of MARC US, owner of A Voce

What: 2012 Tenuta Rapitalà Campo Reale Nero d’ Avola

Why: Olivier says the wine is perfectly balanced—a full-bodied red with smooth tannins and spicy notes of red pepper and cinnamon. It pairs nicely with grilled sardines and salmon, roast chicken and vegetables like asparagus or mushrooms.
