The wine prices are fantastic.   27 Euro for Brunello di Montalcino.   What a bargain for a wine that costs upwards of $200 in Australia.

Italian restaurants have a fabulous selection of wines.   And sooooo cheap, compared to how much we are charged for them in Australia, not to mention a thousand times better quality.

Italian restaurants offer vino da bottiglia (wine by the bottle) or carafe.   The carafe are great value.  We often order una mezzo carafe (half a carafe).   The taste of the house wine tonight was so smooth.  And was only 3 Euro (that’s about 5 AUD).  What a bargain!
