Today we present the final ranking of the 10 wines with the best quality/price ratio, that is the wines to buy in order to drink very well at very convenient prices. We selected the ones having a score equal or higher than 90/100 and a cost lower than 8 euros.
Our champion is Frascati Superiore Vigneto Santa Teresa 2020 Fontana Candida, a white wine from Lazio with a long tradition which is at the top of this special classification because of its extreme typicality and pleasantness and a really affordable price: € 6.50.
