This is a great post, and one of the great things about Italian wine. While everyone’s busy paying too much for Cali and French wine, I’m finding food friendly gems for under $12 all day long thanks to the awesome wine shop across the street, and having tasted plenty of $20 and up wine from plenty of differing locales…I don’t think I’m missing that much.
Will be blogging from Venezia next week, will see what I can find–the grocery store I like on Strada Nuova has some real finds. Stay tuned. 🙂
How many times when I see someone drinking an under $10 bottle of wine do I hear the phrase “IT’S PRETTY GOOD FOR THE PRICE”? It shouldn’t be Pretty Good it should be GREAT FOR THE PRICE!! Once you get away from buying the standard grape varietals such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Merlot, Malbec, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc etc that is where you will find the “GREAT FOR THE PRICE WINES”
Tempranillo has many Synonyms depending what part of Spain or Portugal the grape is grown. In the Toro region of Spain where this wine Pictured above is from it is known as Tinta De Toro Very Close to Ribera Del Duero, Toro has been growing grapes and making wine many years B.C. so you have some really OLD VINE Fruit which makes for Great Wines. It is located in the Province of Zamora in the Northwest Part of Spain…
