680News wine reviews – July 16–18, 2010 

Sella & Mosca Cannonau Riserva
Sella & Mosca Cannonau Riserva comes from the island of Sardinia. The Cannonau grape is actually what the French call Grenache and the Spanish Garnacha. Cannonau is a rustic wine with wild flavours of forest berries, plum, tobacco and spice, not dissimilar in style to the red wine of the southern Rhone. If you pick it up from Vintages outlets before July 18th it costs $13.95. After that date it goes back to its usual price of $14.95. It's the kind of wine that goes well with cassoulet or spicy ribs. That's Sella & Mosca Cannonau Riserva from Sardinia. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler, 680 News and 680 News.com. (Vintages #425488, $14.95 – or $1 less until July 18)

Vineland Estates Semi-Dry Riesling 2008
I keep coming back to Ontario Riesling because it's such great value for the price. A case in point is Vineland Estates Semi-Dry Riesling 2008 with its minerally grapefruit nose and flavours of honey, grapefruit and apricot that starts off sweet and finishes refreshingly dry. It costs $13.95 at the LCBO. Serve it as a chilled aperitif or with pork loin or onion tart. That's Vineland Estates Semi-Dry Riesling 2008 from Ontario. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler, 680 News and 680 News.com. (LCBO #232033, $13.95)
