I'd love it if one bottle did the trick. Could save a lot of money.

+1 on Antinori, regarding PB's decision. Have had the Chianti Classico Riserva and it was good.

+! Dolcetto is an easy way to get into Italian wines.

Who are the major importers I should be looking at? Always been a good way to know if I'm getting something well made or not.

Stay away from the major importers, IMO... find a shop that deals with the smaller, single-vineyards. If you can find any of the Poderi la Collina 2006 nab it.

What I meant was, who are the importers bringing in those small producer wines? At least in Germany and many regions of France, which is what I am most familiar with, there are a couple of importers who are focused on bringing in the quality small producers--I'm thinking Terry Theise, Rudi Wiest, Kermit Lynch, Dressner.

Marc DeGrazia has a great list of Italian wines. At the risk of overstating it... I've never not enjoyed one of his imports.

A LOT of the Italian wines come in through one-on-one relationships, etc... there are big importers but they bring in a lot of blended swill. As such, hit up the Italian specialist at your local shops for some guidance.

Fair enough, thanks.

For what it is.. a wine with 15.5%.. I thought it was balanced. Maybe I just don't expect enough. wink.gif fwiw, I've got another CdP, Domaine du Grand Tinel, that also has 15%.
