This $13 pinot grigio beautifully walks the line of sweet and bitter

A pinot grigio from northern Italy, a spicy pink mix from Spain and an aesthetic cabernet franc from Bulgaria give us three top-notch, moderately priced wines to discover this week.

(2.5 stars)

Delle Venezie, Italy, $13

Kris is a standard-bearer for pinot grigio, a grape whose recognition has resulted in a majority of wines produced from it being insipid and boring. Right here, although, we now have accents of honeysuckle and lime, in addition to a slight almond bitterness on the end. Alcohol by quantity: 12.5 p.c. Bottle weight: 480 grams (Gentle).

Imported by Kris Wine USA. Distributed domestically by Republic Nationwide Distributing Firm.

Acuma by Ego Bodegas Purple Mix 2020

(2.5 stars)

This juicy pink mix relies on monastrell, with minor roles for syrah and petit verdot. It has sufficient heft to match burgers or steaks, providing flavors of tea, olives and sarsaparilla over blackberry and plum. Vegan. ABV: 14.5 p.c. BW: 650 grams (Common).

Imported by Tri-Vin Imports. Distributed domestically by DMV Distributing.

Bononia Property Istar Cabernet Franc 2021

(3 stars)

Danube Plain, Bulgaria, $24

Right here’s a textbook cabernet franc with herbaceous notes of tomato leaves and spice of white pepper over flavors of black plums, dry-cured black olives and tea. There’s quite a bit occurring on this wine. ABV: 14 p.c. BW: 630 grams (Common).

Imported and distributed domestically by Bohemish Wines.
