And the winner is....

We promised results of our tasting of various cheap, everyday-type wines once we had some time to sample a few and the winner is this Nero d'Avola and Frappatto blend. Yes, these are the same two grapes blended to create the DOCG Cerasuolo di Vittoria, but this vino in a box is just 10 euros for 3 liters, or $3.25 a bottle at the current exchange rate. Now that we've discovered our "bottom end" we'll proceed to the top, sampling as many of the Italian Wines 3-glass award winners from Sicily as we can find. With the money we're saving with this wine, the average price per bottle will still be reasonable. Here's a LINK to more about the the young woman who makes this wine
