Each of these is $50 or more except for the Ghisolfi. The Ghisolfi was rated as "Very Good" and the best Barolo for the money. Buy it for just $29.99 right now and save over 40% when comparing the other producers mentioned!
Wall Street Journal Best Barolo under $35
Very Good. Real focus and nice edges. Highly personal, with huge fruit that's so pure and real it's easy to drink despite its size. Quite a wine.
Wine Spectator 88 points
Shows dried mushroom, plum and cigar box aromas, turning to black fruit. Full bodied, with chewy tannins, and a long finish.
