2009 Castelgiocondo BdM - drinking beautifully with a PnP. Perhaps it shouldn't have, but this totally exceeded expectations.

I think this wine is much maligned because it's from a very large producer, but I've found it to be a consistently solid BdM at very reasonable price. The riserva is even better.

I agree with this.  Almost always enjoyable and fairly priced

+1 and the current vintage is always easily accessible in our market. 

Also, just to clarify, when I said “perhaps it shouldn’t have exceeded my expectations” I meant that my expectations probably should have been higher, not that the wine didn’t deserve to exceed expectations. 😏
