uh oh, sounds dangerous


To our members and friends:

Tre Bicchieri (The 3 glass award) is the highest honor given by the Italians to an Italian wine maker and winery. There are not many wines that make this list. We have searched high and low for over six months to put together 48 award winning wines to be put into the TRE BICCHIERI MARATHON.
For our newer members, this is the way our marathons work; TRE BICCHIERI THURSDAY is a marathon event. You will receive only one e mail at midnight (11.59 PM Wednesday) The event will start at midnight Eastern Standard Time. Starting at 12:01 AM, there will be a new wine presented on the site every 30 minutes or until sold out, lasting until 11:59 PM.



The wines will have a picture of the label, a very good description, and any additional ratings found. REMEMBER, THE WINE MUST HAVE WON THE TRE BICCHIERI AWARD FOR THAT SPECIFIC VINTAGE OR WE WOULD NOT PLACE THE WINE IN THIS MARATHON.

We believe the prices of these wines offered are far below retail, but please be aware that we found many web retailers offering these wines at similar (and sometimes lower) prices only to find they do not have (or never had) them to sell.

Most of the wines will have a 1 BOTTLE MINIMUM FOR FREE SHIPPING and express shipping is available for an additional $2.75 per bottle if you so choose. Orders CANNOT be combined for free shipping. We will complete shipping of all orders no later than Wednesday, May 15th.

There have been some nice wines come up, But IMO there not discounted enough. If it is a $7 saving that will not get me to buy a $50 bottle.

Robert Parker- 90 Points

"A blend of 50% Cabernet (planted on the lower part of Rabaja) 25% Nebbiolo (from Rabaja) and 25% Barbera (from a vineyard in Neive) It is a wine of great elegance and harmony, showing ripe, decadent fruit, cassis, roasted espresso beans, and well-integrated oak. 90 points/drink now-2011."

You know Frank, I often think of sending you a bottle of my Syrah that will be bottled May 10, but after looking at what has your interest, I don't know if it would be heavy enough for you.

Send it, I love home made wines. My friend Viking boy that posts on the football threads makes the best. I have other friends and family that make wine and it does not come close , Jimmy makes the best. I have 2 bottles of one a friend on the block made. He said drink it in May.:abused:
