Most of my favorite wines I can't afford on a regular basis.
Well sure. I've had Sassicaia, Gaja, Solaia, Latour, Mouton, and they are special, but I don't include them as my favorites since I don't drink them regularly. As a "favorite," I tend to assign some sort of regularity to their consumption.
I've never had the Pieve you mention, but I've seen it around. Is it a Brunello, or an IGT blend?
