For the best price of any vintage on the market, this is a wonderful northern Italian value that will knock your socks off. At under $30, this wine shows gorgeous fruit and intensity and drinks far above its price point. In terms of an everyday wine that will pair with a variety of foods, this beautiful Barbera is hard to beat.

Poderi Aldo Conterno is largely known for their world-class Baroli, "wines that are deeply expressive and impeccably executed", but their entry-level wines get the same care and attention, with some critics contending that their Barbera is the real "show stealer" given the quality-to-price ratio.

If you're a Piedomont devotee, it's recommended to always have a go-to Barbera on hand - they come in at a fraction of the price of Barolo and Barbaresco, and are beautiful to drink in their youth while still having the structure to last a decade or more. After tasting the 2012 'Conca Tre Pile', this little gem is sure to fit the bill!

It takes patience for a lot of northern Italian wines to come around, but Barberas like this provide immediate gratification. Available today for an outstanding price, this is a wine to buy in quantity as there's no shortage of opportunities to drink it. Cheers!
