680News wine reviews – September 17–19, 2010 

Catena Alamos Chardonnay 2009
The Catena family in Argentina's Mendoza Valley have been making wine for one 100 years. Their Alamos line is very affordable and very good quality. Alamos Chardonnay 2009 has an oily, apple nose with a whiff of oak. It's ripe and spicy with pineapple and melon flavours, full in the mouth with balancing acidity. It costs $13.95 a Vintages and will be released tomorrow (has just been released at Vintages). Try it with toast chicken. That's Catena Alamos Chardonnay 2009 from Argentina, at Vintages. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler, 680News and 680News.com. ($13.95, Vintages #801571)

Ricossa Barbera D'Asti
Barbera wines from Piedmont are usually quite light in style but in the hands of the Pietro Rinaldi winery Barbera becomes an awesomely big wine. The Ricossi Barbera d'Asti Superiore 2007, released tomorrow (released this weekend) at Vintages, is a dense purple-coloured wine with an intense bouquet of black fruits and vanilla oak; rich and spicy on the palate it really fills the mouth with oodles of juicy fruit. It costs $16.95 and you won't taste another Barbera d'Asti like it. Good for steak. That's Ricossa Barbera d'Asti 2007 from Italy at Vintages outlets. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler, 680News and 680News.com. ($16.95, Vintages #70839)
