Sounds about right. It's usually around a $20 bottle US. Banfi is a huge bulk producer.

Whiskey man, want to get into some wine. I've tried a few reds that I've liked but I've no idea of the names. Whites are out. What should I try? Ready to spend 50 euro to start out my journey into what you guys obviously love quite alot. Suggestions please!

 

Edit: One of the reds I liked the most was slightly dry and a bit fruity, not excessively however.

^^

spend 50 Euro on 5 different bottles to get a feel for things

Any particular brands I should look at? Thanks.

That is an impossible question to answer. "What's a good red wine" is impossibly broad.

Go try five different types of red wine and figure out what types of wine you like. Then worry about producers.

Slightly dry red and whites are out? You really need to go somewhere with a good wine by the glass program and just taste.
post #15594 of 17900

Understandably. Figured there'd be 5 great red wines where everyone who tries them falls inlove. Will shop around! Thanks guys.

 

 

Edit: @Pio, the red that I've tried and liked most was slightly dry, slightly dry was not something I disliked. White whines however just seem not to be my thing.

I drank my last one of these a while ago - really enjoyable, great vintage for Terrebrune.

Drinking like a rock star. Beautiful bottle.
Prominent tobacco nose and palate.

I would suggest buying a mixture of wines, take pictures and simple notes (like this, didn't like that) and then post the pictures or names here and I'd bet that many of us could provide suggestions based on your likes.

Very generous suggestion Gent, I'm gonna head out soon and get some wines together, birthday in the beginning of April so I'll need some fuel for life. Will try to keep in mind the note-taking. Thanks man fistbump.gif
