This continues to be one of our favorite wines. Barolos can be one of the more expensive Italian wines, however this one will only set you back about $40. It’s consistently delicious and easy to drink. It’s our “go to” special occasion wine. We discovered this wine while having dinner at a local restaurant. We must have been celebrating something, because we ordered a bottle off their wine list and I remember it was $85. We loved it so much, we set out searching our local wine stores for another bottle. As is usually the case, it was only $40 at the liquor store. Restaurant mark-up on wine continues to amaze me. There’s something to be said for going to a BYOB. Definitely try this one if you love Italian reds, you won’t be disappointed.
