Donaltella Cinelli Colombini's Brunello di Montalcino is one I like that's not as expensive as the very big names, yet it's well respected. I bought a bottle of Prime Donne reserve Brunello (1997) in Montalcino last year for $30, but it's 2x that here in California. Their non-reserve is good too and about $5 less. The Fortezza in Montalcino is a good place to try different Brunellos.

No. The Italians do not use that Balsamic everyday, nor do the french eat truffles, froie gras every day. These are luxury items.
We don't have lobsters every day, tho we are the lobster capital. Too expensive.

Thanks Alice_Twain, you understand exactly what I am talking about. I would love to share a meal @ your home anytime. Some of these other folks .... I'm not so sure. Why in the world if you spend the $$ on it in the first place would you not grate it yourself ? Wasn't trying to be a 'gourmand', just trying to use some common sense..

Posts: n/a also carries some interesting foodstuffs. I don't think cheese is included though.
