680News wine reviews – September 2–4, 2011 

Jean-Paul Brun Côte De Brouilly 2009
Beaujolais from the ten named villages in the north of the region has more complexity and concentration than the simple Beaujolais from the south. And a step up in quality from Beaujolais-Villages. One of the named villages or crus is Côte De Brouilly. Currently at Vintages is Jean-Paul Brun Côte De Brouilly from the marvellous 2009 vintage. On the nose you'll experience ripe black cherries, spice, violets and an earthy note. It costs $18.95 a bottle. Serve it with roast chicken. Or chill it and serve it with salmon. That's Jean-Paul Brun Côte De Brouilly 2009 from Beaujolais. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler, 680News and 680News.com. ($18.95, Vintages #235127)

Petra Zingari Toscana Rosso 2008
There's a red wine from Tuscany that has little to do with Chianti but it tastes great. Petra Zingari Toscana Rosso 2008 is a blend of Sangiovese, Merlot, Syrah and Petit Verdot fermented in stainless steel. Expect a bouquet of cherries, black licorice and leather with a truffle note. It's full on the palate and rather supple, drinking well already, very pleasant and really well priced at $16.95 at Vintages outlets. Try it with tomato-based pastas or fresh parmesan. That's Petra Zingari Toscana Rosso 2008 from Italy. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler, 680News and 680News.com. ($16.95, Vintages #244228)
