WINE SPECTATOR 100 OUTSTANDING VALUES


This is Wine Spectator's 'other' list, the Top 100 Values, which we first promoted last year. Just like the more widely followed 'Top 100' list, there are a number of wines that are long gone from the marketplace (no surprise) since these are wines that scored at least 90 points and have a retail price of less than $18 per bottle.

Some of the wines here are 'last of vintage' and there are others on Spectator's complete list that haven't hit the market yet. This will be an 'ongoing story' because wines like these have a value during any 'season.'

Times Wine-of-the Week among other accolades.  The 2009 and 2010 vintages were quite different in Piedmont but Oddero managed to make a very similarly styled, easy-to-like Barbera with bright, medium weight, spicy blue fruits and nicely punctuated but unobtrusive acidity.  It... read more
