Today's offer is one that many of you will remember for a long time.  Not only was one of the other wines from this estate a huge hit earlier this year, this offer earned an even higher score ... and is available a flat out incredible price. 
Think about this for a second:
--- A 97 Point Italian wine that comes down to $18.99 plus free shipping on case orders
--- The perfect BBQ wine for any summer party or event
--- A big, bold, full bodied red that drinks like it should cost 2 to 3 times the amount
--- A wine you can enjoy right now OR put in your cellar for a few years to age
--- A bottle that you will look back on years from now and laugh at what you paid.
Bottom line, wines with the specs above don't come around often.  Today however ... is an example of one of those occasions.

"To me, this is really drinking like a $50 bottle of wine at $19.99"

Those are the words of Gary Vaynerchuk, star of WinelibraryTV, after tasting this wine for the first time. Watch the full video by clicking below!

The score was eye popping for sure, but that aside ... what really got us hooked here ... was what was in the bottle.   Hold the bottle in your hand for the first time and your first impression will lead you to think that what is in the bottle ... is big. 
It is.
A massively well structured wine, this is a blockbuster deal in every sense of the word.  Luca Maroni awarded the Bollina "Athos" Toscana Rosso Corte Medicea 2013, 97 points on his scale (Consistency 32, Balance 33, Integrity 32). 
We previously offered another wine from this estate earlier this year and it was an incredible success.  This is the next in line and for many of you, will be a stunning discovery this summer ... and beyone!
Having a BBQ this summer?  If so ... this is something to buy by the case
This is one of those wines your friends will flat out flip for!
This screams out for those Friday and Saturday night BBQ's so many of you are planning this summer.  It's big and bold, will stand up to many different dishes and is a wine that continues to evolve in the glass (or decanter) as the evening goes on.
Don't be fooled by the price point.  This is a monster of a wine with layer after layer of complexity and concentration.  It's the kind of wine you might spend when buying a $30-$50 bottle from Napa.  It's something that in a brown bag, many of your Cabernet Sauvignon fans would rave over ... despite the fact that it is 100% Merlot.
Anyway you look at it ... it's a spectacular offer that is without question, one of our finest red wine values of the summer!

More about La Bollina itself ... and our final thoughts on this spectacular offer
Dollar for dollar ... this is as big as it gets when you look in the $20 and under range

The Bollina winery began production under its current ownership around 2011. The previously existing vineyard and wine cellar have undergone major renovations aimed towards modernization. The winemaking team works as a collaboration of a few wine professionals with many years worth of combined experience in viticulture and viniculture. The winemakers emphasize their enthusiasm for making wines using a pure and principled approach.
We have tasted a ton of new wines from Italy this year.  Some of the wines we have tasted under this label have really made us shake our heads.   Why?  The quality of what is in the bottle vs the price point seems out of whack.  These are big wines ... with outstanding structure ... that can be purchased at a price far less than what many would expect.

We're talking intense ruby color here.  This incredible Merlot from Tuscany is both complex and persistent on the palate.  Medium to full bodied, expect notes of blackberry, cedar and smooth, big, lush tannins on the finish. 

All in all, this is a spectacular wine for the money!!
