2000 Pietra Santa Merlot & Sasso Rosso

Are you broke and do you love Italian *like* wine?

If you are and do, here's the deal, go to Big Lots and stock up as many Pietra Santa as you want for until you know your next pucket of gold comes in the mail.

The 2000 Merlot was alright, not too impressed. It definitely doesn't cut my throat as bad as other $5.00 wine but I'm really a fine nice Merlot fan so I'm not going back. But the 2000 Sasso Rosso, holy loly! $2.50 a bottle for that quality of wine is incredible. Smooth, smooth... A little on the sour side but definitely the cheapest light-to-medium bodied you can get for $2.50. Dude you can't even get a burrito for $2.5 nowadays, what a steal! Good with microwave dinners with other broke friends on the rainy days...

Have you tried Crane Lake Petite Sirah…
It's not Italian, but it is damn good for the price. [Sprouts -- often $2.50]
