Fontanafredda Briccotondo Barbera 2006

REGION: Piedmont, Italy
PRICE: $10

This is as super-smooth an Italian as I've ever encountered--and that includes a few close encounters while vacationing in northern Italy one summer. Ripe, round plum and berry notes accentuated with a subtle nudge of black pepper and spice. It is a natural match for tuscan pot roast, but I like it with thin crust pizza as well. This is a great find for lovers of Italian (wines, of course) and a beautiful value-priced Barbera. I found it at Costco for $10 but you can also find it here: Fontanafredda Briccotondo Barbera.

p.s. If you're into ratings, this baby made the Wine Spectator Top 100 2007 and was given a whopping 90 points.
