680News wine reviews – January 11–13, 2013 

Bricco dei Guazzi Barbera d'Asti 2008
Barbera d'Asti usually plays second fiddle to Piemonte's Barolos and Barbarescos. But here's one that has a big voice. Recently released at Vintages is Bricco dei Guazzi Barbera d'Asti 2008. This full-bodied wine is more in New World style with its richly extracted blackcurrant flavour and soft, fruit palate appeal. It costs $16.95 at Vintages outlets. Perfect for spaghetti Bolognese or osso buco. That's Bricco dei Guazzi Barbera d'Asti 2008 from Italy at Vintages. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler, 680News and 680News.com. ($16.96, Vintages #181495)

Jip Jip Rocks Sparkling Shiraz
You're probably familiar with Australian Shiraz, but have you tried the sparkling version? Currently at the LCBO is Jip Jip Rocks Sparkling Shiraz, a fun, easy-drinking non-vintage frothy wine. Ruby coloured with a nose of blackberries, it's off-dry with flavours of strawberries and vanilla but it finishes firmly to give the wine structure. It costs $16.90 a bottle and would work well as an aperitif or served with blue cheese. That's Jip Jip Rocks Sparkling Shiraz from Australia. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler, 680News and 680News.com. ($16.90, LCBO #212472)
