Heading into the holiday season, here are ten top-value reds we've tasted over the last year.
We've got you covered whether you're looking for something light and juicy (Haywire Gamay or Monte del Frá Bardolino), complex and savoury (Sella & Mosca Cannonau di Sardegna Riserva or Basilisco Teodosio Aglianico del Vulture), or full-bodied and bold (Luigi Bosca Malbec or Carmen Gran Reserva Carmenere).
