Over-Delivering: 2017 Zio Baffa $15

Looking for an every day red that will elevate any evening or meal? Here is a terrific bargain, and the most chill, easy-going, organically-grown Italian red you're likely to find. Born as a side project from the production of the beautiful Bella Vita surf documentary filmed in Tuscany, this $15 wine over-delivers. Relaxed, friendly, and soulful, its moderate alcohol/pleasant acidity combination comes with medium-bodied, round fruit and a puff of chocolate dust. Easy to gulp thanks to its pert freshness, yet with a dash of refinement, too. 91 points.
