Costing under $12, scoring 16 Dionysian points from 20,with 13% alcohol, the 2006 Basa Blanco from Rueda in Spain is always an outstanding wine buy.

Filled with floral and citrus aromas, the wine is great when still young, but can age very well adding unique little notes to its flavor.

It was featured with a series of tappas, nine small dishes to savor, and help the wine show off its charm. It worked with everything. In Vino Veritas.
