I have a wooden box with 3 bottles of wine in it a Lambrusco, Bianco, and Bianco. I can't find a date on any thing just M.A.F.  N. 695/MO. I was wondering what it was worth

Hi Debbie

These are nice wines, but they are not wines that are intended to age.  They are best when young and fruity.  As such, they won't have appreciated in value over the years--in fact, they are probably worth less than they were when they were first released.

They won't hurt you---so don't be afraid to drink them.  They will just have lost some of their fruit, and seem a bit tired and faded.

I am sorry that I can't give you better news than that.
