Here's one my local wine guy is high on:

Massolino Barolo 2003, about $40.

"Bright and fruity, with raspberry and lemon aromas that follow through to a medium- to full-bodied palate, with chewy tannins and a slightly austere finish. The only Barolo from this producer in 2003. Best after 2010. 3,500 cases made." (Wine Spectator, 89 Points)

"Massolino decided against bottling their single-vineyard Barolos in 2003, opting instead for a blend, which consumers will be able to enjoy at a very reasonable price considering today’s market environment. The estate’s 2003 Barolo is made in a soft approachable style. It reveals notable depth in its core of vibrant black cherries with lovely purity and well-integrated tannins. This is a terrific effort from Massolino. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2018." (Robert Parker, Wine Advocate, 92 Points)
