680News wine reviews – February 22–24, 2013 

Anselmi San Vincenzo 2011
My go-to wine from the Veneto region when I need a reliable white is Anselmi San Vincenzo. Roberto Anselmi doesn't call it a Soave, but that's what it is. The wine is a Vintages Essential, which means, in theory, it should always be available. The current vintage is 2011. The bouquet is smoky, minerally, white peach; the mouth-filling flavour is more like a ripe golden plum, soft on the palate with a mineral thread. It costs $15.95 a bottle. Try it with grilled fish or a ripe camembert. That's Anselmi San Vincenzo 2011 from Italy at Vintages outlets. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler, 680News and 680News.com. ($15.95. Vintages #948158)

Teruzzi & Puthod Vernaccia di San Gimignano 2011
I have always liked the medieval-style label of Teruzzi & Puthod Vernaccia di San Gimignano. This Tuscan white is unlike any white wine you might have tasted. The 2011 currently at Vintages outlets has that characteristic Vernaccia nose – stony, citrus and white peach. The wine is medium-bodied, well balanced, crisply dry and elegant with a nutty, grapefruit zest note on the finish. It costs $15.95 a bottle. A wine for seafood pasta or pecorino cheese. That's Teruzzi & Puthod Vernaccia di San Gimignano 2011 from Italy. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler, 680News and 680News.com. ($15.95, Vintages #316976)
