It's February, which means there's a high likelihood you're splitting a bottle with girlies for Galentine's or sharing a glass with your sweetheart over Valentine's dinner. It's still chilly, so you need a dependable red to open on a weeknight. But it's also superbowl month! Which means you need a nice, easy white to drink alongside a spread of sports food. Well, fear not, this pack has you covered. These three bottles of Italian wine are selected to get you sorted for all that this short, fun month has to offer and for $45, it's a confirmed steal.

Belli Folli Nero D'Avola. Belli Folli is a light-hearted and juicy expression of Nero D'Avola perfect for the warmer weather. With moderate alcohol and no oak, it’s a refreshing departure from the stereotypical, big and chewy styles. Put a chill on it, and let the palate charm you with its sweet dark fruits, fruitcake spice, and breezy Mediterranean gusto. "Belli Folli" means "beautiful fools," which means it's the perfect bottle to split with your smooching partner and have a silly little evening!

2022 Dalia Delle Venezie Pinot Grigio. This wine is an excellent all-purpose, clean, fresh, and delicious Pinot Grigio. The grapes are sourced from Veneto and fermented cool and fresh at just 12.5% alcohol. The result is a Pinot Grigio that punches above its weight class with crunchy stone fruit and a nice acid to carry the fruit flavors through a dry, crisp, finish. With soft green herbs and freshly squeezed citrus notes on the nose, this is the bottle I plan to chill down and drink with a feast of dips while I ignore people yelling at Travis Kelce on a TV. He can't hear you!

Mercato Puglia Carne Rosso 2020. Carne has soft, dark red fruits of plum, cherry, and blackberry, with undertones of tobacco and warm spice. Easy on the palate, it is medium bodied with soft tannins and a classic, dry finish. A classic red table wine, it begins strong and finishes with elegance and ease. I don't think I need to tell you that a bottle of red wine with a literal cow on it would be good to drink with a burger or chili. But beyond that, "good with grilled meat" is sometimes code for "this wine is fine." Carne is fresher, more acidic and leaner than expected, which means it wins my vote for pairing with the Galentine's charcuterie and cheese spread. Or Man Date Night! Don't let me tell you how to celebrate. You are Ken-ough.
