Cascina Val de Prete, Serra de'Gatti, Barbera d'Alba, 2006. This is one of my "go-to" Barberas when I want to drink something fairly cheap but good. It's full of bright red berry fruit, tart cherry and rustic acidity. True pizza wine!
I found this for $22 at Froma on Melrose, the best little sandwich shop in LA! It's just west of Fairfax. You have to stay, eat a sammy and chow on some gerkins and a chocolate chip cookie. It's all homemade (except for the gerkins).
The 2005 is delicious too, K&L has it for $17.99.
By the way... check out the new MW study page. Feedback welcomed!
