Masciarelli’s Montepulciano d’Abruzzo was one of 10 wines  featured in a column by Lettie Teague in this past weekend’s Wall Street Journal. The article, “The Budget-Wine Hall of Fame,” focuses on wines that are well made yet friendly on the wallet. Below is an excerpt. Click here to read the full article (subscription-only).

“CERTAIN WINES have reputations tarnished by the connotation of “cheap.” They’re usually the lowest-priced offerings on a restaurant wine list and shelved near the floor in a wine store. Often described by unpromising adjectives like “affordable,” “drinkable” or simply “fun,” they include wines such as Beaujolais, Chianti, Pinot Grigio, Chilean Sauvignon Blanc and Muscadet. And their reputation for cheapness knows no borders. Just last week, I served a French dinner guest Muscadet and was informed, “That’s a wine we drink in bistros for 3 euros.”

While plenty of Pinot Grigios and Chiantis deserve scorn, there are also exceptions that warrant praise. I set out to find these humble gems—the wines that are well made as well as drinkable and, yes, “affordable.” After tasting my way through a few disappointments, I found 10 budget-friendly bottles that were actually quite good.”
