Highly recommended: Venica 2001 Merlot, Collio DOC, Fruilia, Italy. Price:$15 Rating: 91
I think this is the best $15 bottle of wine I've ever had. It seriously drinks and tastes like a $60 bottle, so soft on the palate its like its barely there, with a pure, long finish. There's a growing trend now in Italy where winemakers are willing to experiment with new grapes and new blends, even grapes typically associated with the French (merlot). Applause to them, because frankly some of the old-school Italian recipes are kind of stale, and not taking full advntage of the wonderful vinyard land. Very highly recommended, drink now.
