Wine Spectator Top 100 Wine for $7!

I rarely will write a post about a single wine, but today’s deal from K&L warrants an alert.  Enter the 2008 Fontanafredda Barbera Piemonte “Briccotondo” one of the go-to table wines that I’ve served at least a case of over the past two years– and gladly paid $12 for it.  Today, some “wholesale deal gone wrong” enables K&L to sell it off at $7.  Back up the truck!

It’s deals like these that keep me loyal to trustable retailers with a quality email list.  I subscribe to about a dozen, and always keep the pulse on deals around town and across the world.  Yes, there’s lots of noise in my email box every week, but a month never goes by without me finding an outstanding wine deal in the $10-20 range.

Here is K&L’s tasting notes on Briccotondo:

“Even the best plans often don’t work out, and when a major national retail chain asked Fontanafredda to prepare a special box for them and ordered up a bunch… who knew they would decide not to take it! Fortunately for you inventory pressures forced the distributors hand, and they decided they’d waited long enough and decided it was time to get this outta here fast and cheap! So now for you it’s resulted in an outstanding bargain on one of our best selling selections. This Barbera has been one of our most popular “Bargain Wines” for the last couple of years as well as a feature in the Top 100 wines from the Wine Spectator. Fontanafredda has done an outstanding job of making a wine with real, vibrant flavors that just jump out of the glass. They’ve also done an amazing job of softening Barbera’s sometime forceful acidity to make this wine supremely pleasant for anyone to drink! Try it with foods from the BBQ or your favorite pasta, it is a real winner! (Greg St.Clair K&L’s Italian buyer) According to Wine Enthusiast “An impressive effort at this price point, the Briccotondo Barbera offers up an eclectic mix of herbs, scented soap, yuzu and citrus fruit leading into a concentrated, multilayered palate. Long, cherry-infused finish. Drink now to 2011. – W.E. (2/1/2010) According to Wine Spectator: “Raspberry and blueberry aromas lead to a medium body, with delicious fruit and hints of vanilla and cream. Drink now. 42,000 cases made.”
