Two weeks ago I posted some pretty extensive notes titled Reds of the OltrepoPavese. Last spring I did some on the Valtelline wines.
It's a vastly underrecognized area for some really good/tasty/affordable reds. In particular, I think the Valtelline region offers a far better model for Calif Nebbiolo than does the Piedmonte. Some of the Sfursats are terrific.

Where the heck are you anyway? I should know, I've read your posts enough, but I'm guessing Scandinavia. Sucks you had to pay 40 Euros for that Teroldego. Anyway, good luck having your sister's boyfriend find a Groppello!!
