1994 Basignani Marisa ($8)


This red table wine blend from the Basignani winery in Baltimore County has been winning a loyal following in this area with its bright, lively, racy flavors. Out of an assortment of trashy red hybrid grapes and a few classier varietals, Bert Basignani has fashioned a mighty convincing knock-off of a good Beaujolais. That's serious alchemy, as well as a bargain. It's perfect with grilled chicken or fish.
