2007 Tormaresca "Neprica" Puglia

8$ at Costco; about 10$ everywhere else. Berries, licorice, and chocolate. This is a blend of Negroamaro, Primitivo and Cabernet Sauvignon. Pretty tasty and well made for 8$. This winery is owned by the Antinori family...I guess that they decided to break out of Tuscany where they could still get land for cheap. I've read that there are some peculiar EU rules regarding vineyard land; since there is a glut of cheap wine, you have to buy an existing vineyard, as the EU is trying to support the price of grapes.
