We love both Brunello and Amarone wines - their full body, depth of flavor, old world earthiness, etc. and would like to enjoy something similar, on the cheap!
Less expensive Chianti's, Rosso di Montalcino's, Valpolicella Ripasso's are all nice but not the same. Maybe there's a "best of" one of these types, or something else from Italy, Spain or Chile that we should consider.
So, without spending $50 to $100(+) for a Brunello or Amarone, what's a $20 everyday alternative, currently available in NYC or NJ wine shops, etc.?? Thanks!
