680News wine reviews – February 25–27, 2011 

Meditrina Red Wine
Meditrina is a non-vintage red blend from Oregon, made up of Oregon Pinot Noir, Washington State Syrah and Paso Robles Zinfandel. Meditrina is named for the Roman goddess of health, longevity and wine. Deep purple-ruby in colour, the wine has a fruity, plummy nose with a note of leather; it's spicy with a flavour of sweet black fruits, medium-bodied, easy drinking and soft on the palate. It costs $19.95. A wine for pizza and hamburgers. That's Meditrina Red Wine from Oregon. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler, 680 News and 680News.com. ($19.95, LCBO #206888)

Castello di Neive Barbaresco 2007
Barbaresco is one of my favourite Italian reds. From the Piemonte region you'll find a very well-priced wine called Castello di Neive Barbaresco 2007. It's on LCBO shelves for $19.95 and in the US it sells for twice that price. The wine is ruby-coloured with a nose of vanilla oak, dried cherries, graphite and minerals; it's medium-bodied, dry with great extract and balance and a lovely velvety mouth-feel. Try it with tomato-based pasta dishes. That's Castello di Neive Barbaresco 2007 from Italy. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler, 680 News and 680News.com. ($19.95, LCBO #160143)
