2006 UGO LEQUIO Barbera d’Alba “Gallina”
$13.95 bottle/ $135.00 case
Here we go again. This Lequio Barbera closeout mania started with the ’04, went to ’05 last year, and now we have an absolutely screaming deal on the 2006 vintage, which is a colossally great vintage for Piedmont in general and Lequio in particular. Intense and earthy aromas and flavors, spices galore, buckets of ripe cherries, smoke, rose petals. Is it any wonder I effing love Barbera?? This is absolutely delicious, still young with a good 2 or 3 years still to go, and drinking perfectly right now. The distributor did the aging for us on this, and I strongly, almost insistently, encourage you to take advantage, especially at $15 off its original front line price and $4 off what I thought was the old closeout price! Single vineyard Barbera this good for this little money ($11.25 a bottle by the case!!) is an absurd buying opportunity. 50 cases available.
Original Front Line Price: $28.95 bottle
Old sale price: $17.95
