Looking for good Father's Day Juice

Howdy folks, looking to bring three or four bottles over for this weekend to share immediately. The recipient is a fan of Spanish and Italian wines with preference towards Priorat and Brunello. I'm heading to Astor Wines (NYC) to select a few bottles -- any input on the few below -- or suggestions on alternatives you've found at Astor?

Prieto Picudo "Gamonal", Pardevalles - 2006 -- have never tried this grape but it sounds unique

Brunello di Montalcino, Mastrojanni - 2003 -- have had the 99 and 01 of this and liked -- any idea how the 03 fares?

Schramsberg, Brut Rosé - 2004

  1. Priorat - The Onix and Rotllan are decent options on the low end, but if you're willing to splurge the Clos de l'Obac is stellar.

    Schramsberg is always a consistently good sparkler.

    However, if you want to spend $20 more, the Bruno Gobillard VV NV champagne is absolutely brillant.

      Excellent, thanks for the recommendations!

      The Onix and Rotllan I've had and like -- I'll give the l'Obac a try.
