Durigutti Bonarda 2008
A bonarda that delivers, as much as bonarda can. There's almost no bouquet, which may come as a relief for this varietal, and the rich taste of raspberry jam isn't overly blocked by the extant tannins. (AV 86, http://argovino.com/?p=232)Add winemaker's notes

Deep inky ruby red goodness. Dark fruit, cocoa, and leather on the nose. Flavors of lush black cherry, plum, pepper, and a hint of rustic vanilla. Satisfying finish. Medium / full-bodied wine. Good fruit, tannins and bright acidity gives this wine excellent structure. Food friendly - paired with steak, baked potatoes and grilled onions tonight. A keeper. About 12 bucks at Specs.
I was VERY skeptical that a wine under $10 could actually be good. At $5.99/bottle I am AMAZED at how drinkable this wine is.
