- Langhe, Nebbiolo, 2008, $18* Don’t let the price fool you, this is a big boy red. Nebbiolo is the same Italian varietal used in Barolos and Barbarescos, but here you can savor it for a fraction of the price. Pouring from Piedmonte, this rich wine is like sipping a bowl full of ripe cherries with a tinge of sweet black licorice.
