Marchesi di Barolo

Marchesi di Barolo 2005

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.
