Well, different strokes, I guess. I've had the regular bottling several times and have always loved it. It's more tutti-fruiti and carbonic-like (although I don't think it sees carbonic maceration), while the Finca Meixeman has more of an herbal core underneath.
Picked up these four recently from the LCBO...
x1 2010 Cascina Dardi Bussia Barolo (a gift for a friend I'm visiting this weekend)
x1 2012 Xavier 100% Cotes du Rhone (40% Grenache, 20% Syrah, 15% Mouvedre, etc.) I've never tried the CdP from this producer, but I know they are one of the most respected in CdP, so I'm excited to try this entry-level bottling. I've included a link below to a wine of their's I find interesting: a non-vintage CdP, which by the description, sounds excellent.
x2 2009 Canonica a Cerreto Chianti Classico Riserva. I tend to love good Chianti with a few years age on it and can usually find at decent prices for daily-drinking. I usually spend $16-20 for my daily drinkers and this was $20.
