2004 Dessilani Piemonte Nebbiolo Spanna Riserva, Italy, Piedmont - Wine Review

Bought on release for $19.99 and consumed in 2017, this is what value wines are all about.  Sure, its not Barolo, but it drinks in that style and is excellent.  Ruby in color.  The nose is mature with cherries, dust, tar and dried roses.  On the palate, this does not have much depth but nice cherry and dried cherry fruit.  Good acidity.  Certainly at its peak or slightly past.  It begs for food and delivers at the table.  Great value.  

2016 Folonari Chianti, Italy, Tuscany - Wine Review

This sells for about $7.  It certainly is an excellent value at that price.  A nice wine to order at a local Italian restaurant or buy for a party.  Ruby/purple in color.  The nose is clean with raspberries, and light black cherries.  Slight tea leaves.  On the palate, this is crisp and clean.  Cherried.  Nary a tannin.  Dry but a perception of sweetness.  Good acidity.  Works with food.  

2013 Macarico Aglianico del Vulture Macari

Deep ruby in color, purple core.  The nose ha some slight recution on it.  Plums and black cherries.  Medium tannins.  On the palate, big dark cherry fruit.  Also plums.  A very tasty wine.  A modicum of depth but this is more about easy and drink now and enjoy.  Nice finish.  $15 is a great value.
