Valtellina, Campania Whites, Bandol

Alison Napjus
Issue: February 28, 2014

Like most wine drinkers, Wine Spectator's Alison Napjus has some tried-and-true regions and producers that are her go-tos when she's handed a wine list. She spends a lot of time happily drinking these wines, but life gets boring if you don't mix it up, and one of the most exciting aspects of the wine world is its diversity. Her selections here run the stylistic spectrum of dry table wines, from crisp, juicy whites from Italy's Campania region to structured, elegant reds from the country's northern appellation of Valtellina to powerhouse reds from Provence's preeminent area of Bandol. She enjoys these wines because they're high-quality examples from unique grape varieties and under-the-radar wine regions. All of them have a story worth discovering.
