-Salento (IGT), ITALY
-Negroamaro (grape varietal)
-Vintage 2005 (DRINK NOW)
-L.C.B.O. PRICE: $8.45
(Widely Available - "Thanks, Dad!")
This label is one of the most popular Italian wines among consumers
(and restaurant operators) within Ontario ("Thanks, Dad!"). At $8.45,
it is always good, with full body, good fruit (with lots of dark
cherries), and balanced acidity. For people looking for an 'Old World'
wine below $10.00, I would always recommend buying a few bottles of
this particular item.
PAIRING SUGGESTION: Spaghetti with meat sauce --- enjoy!

-Vintage 2006 (DRINK NOW)
-L.C.B.O. PRICE: $9.00
To be certain, this has got to be one of the best-priced (and least
well-known) bargains the L.C.B.O. has to offer. At under ten dollars,
this wine is full of dark flavours and wonderful fruit, as well as
marked by a noticeably long finish
PAIRING SUGGESTION: Smoked ribs --- enjoy!
