Wines for Your Pasta for Under $15

As we move into cooler weather, dishes become heartier, savory, and full of fall produce. For pasta, this can mean anything from an authentic Bolognese to a savory butternut squash and sage gemelli. Whether you’re making a quick after-work dinner with dry pasta and your favorite jar sauce, or taking a lazy Sunday to cook your pasta and sauce from scratch, your hard work deserves a satisfying glass of wine. We’ve picked four of our favorites for under $15.

Reverdito-Barbera-D_27alba-2007-Label2009 Reverdito Barbera D’Alba (Piedmont): $12.99

A rising, young star in Piedmont, Michele Reverdito adheres closely to the best of traditional methods in his winemaking. Big and leathery with rich fruit and a little licorice and truffle on the palate. Superb acidity with a delicate and persistent finish. Serve with Bolognese.

82109_DEFAULT2009 Rocca di Fabbri Montefalco Rosso (Umbria): $14.99

The Rocca Di Fabbri Montefalco Rosso is a blend of 65% Sangiovese, 15% Sagrantino, and 20% altre uve a bacca rossa. Intense ruby and golden red in the glass with a rich nose showing hints of wild berries. The palate is well-orchestrated, firmly structured, dry and lingering, making it a great companion for a cream or cheese-based sauce.

buglioni-il-valpolicella-valpolicella-classico-veneto-italy-100912972011 Buglioni Classico il Valpolicella (Veneto): $14.99

Buglioni is one of the best-kept secrets in Verona – wines that are full of fruit but not too syrupy or sweet. Bright ruby red with fragrant and intense aromas of cherry, delicate berry fruit and spices. Dry, harmonious flavor, fresh and persistent. This wine is perfect for pastas with fall vegetables or seafood and fish.
