  • Lungarotti Rubesco 2004
 

Durbanville Hills Sauvignon Blanc 2006 (South Africa)
$13.15 (LCBO #22251)
A well-priced Sauvignon with true varietal character. Not as exaggerated as New Zealand Sauvignon but very pleasing cut grass and gooseberry flavours with a touch of nettles on the nose. Crisp and dry. Well made. A small peel-off label on the back to remember the wine. ***½
Food match: ratatouille; goat's cheese

Cousiño-Macul Antiguas Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon 2005 (Chile)
$15.15 (LCBO #212993)
An ageable Chilean red. More in Bordeaux style than Maipo Valley. Blackcurrant and chocolate on the nose, it's dry and full-flavoured with cassis and red pepper notes. Good value. ***½
Food match: lamb chops; cheddar

Lungarotti Rubesco 2004 (Italy)
$12.35 (LCBO #41947)
An old-style Umbrian red made from Sangiovese. Ruby colour; earthy, cherry with a touch of oak on the nose; medium-bodied, dry sour cherry flavour with lively acidity. Perfect with salami. ***½
Food match: Tomato-based pasta dishes; smoked meat sandwich
