     6 Fine Wines Under $10 :
 
     1) 2013 dry white Italian wine from Piemonte, a Cortese , Bricco Dei TATI, On Special for $6.99 a bottle, what a great refreshing.lively treat with real taste , distinct, good character, best with food! Yes!
 
     2) Garnacha & Syrah, a 2014 vintage, from Spain , the Campo De Borja region, this VINA COLLADO On Special for $7.99 a bottle with 14% alcohol by volume is tasty and over-delivers for the price, a great quaffer! Full, round, layered with good accents of pepper-white and spice, everything nice!
 
     3) 2014 Piemonte Barbera from Bricco dei TATI , $8.49 a bottle, is a delight, peppery, spicy, earthy, classic style, to be enjoyed with a meal, that is where it will shine, great value, too. Medium-to-lighter-bodied, packs some poignant punches!
 
     4) Macabeo indigenous dry grape variety used to make many sparkling Spanish cavas, this VINA COILADO 2014, On Special for $8.99 a bottle,   with 12.5% alcohol by volume is a tasty, distinct dry white to use again with food where the food and the wine work off one another and taste the best. May Mediterranean dishes here, shellfish, some fresh sardines from a lake, some paella, a feijoada from Brazil, so many great combos here including many dry and hard and semi-hard cheeses will be great together here!
