Wine Spectator's Bruce Sanderson delivers a choice selection of wines. With wines from nearly 400 grape varieties, Italy outpaces its nearest competitor by almost double. Here are a few examples, from Aglianico to Sagrantino, along with some blends. Also some reds and whites that hail from Washington, the source of many domestic values. Included is a selection from France and Spain which highlights the quality-to-price ratios of some famous and lesser-known regions. And finally a group of South African wines that deliver bold fruit flavors at budget-minded prices, showcasing the range of grape varieties on offer from the Cape.
