A Christmas gift from D in '08; had been saving this to pair with her eggplant Parmesan, and tonight was the night! Mercy, this stuff is nice.... beautiful color and nose, everything in its place on the palate, wonderful long finish. Only 125 cases made. 14% alc/vol and about $40 at Houston Wine Merchant. Worth 3X the price.

Sounds like a killer drink. Wish I could pronounce some of those Italian names then I'd try to find them. Born and reared in Okla doesn't make for being an accomplished linguist. WW [Image: wink.gif]

...and that wine came from a rainy vintage!

This stuff is still dancin' around me taste buds.

Hey-hey! Found it at specsonline.com at the main Houston store: go to http://www.specsonline.com, type Nebbiolo in the search window, and look down to Luigi Penna Nebbiolo d'Alba 05/06, listed at $36.83 pb or $416.08 cs, toll free 888-526-8787. Would need to call 'em to confirm the vintage.

Would order a pick-up load if we weren't facing the annual extortion ritual known tax-time.
