680News wine reviews – May 24–26, 2013 

Gaia Thalassitis Assyrtiko 2011
Gaia Thalassitis Aysyrtiko 2011 is produced from 80-year-old Assyrtiko vines on the Greek island of Santorini. You can smell the volcanic soil in which the grapes were grown, which gives the wine a minerally, smoky, nose with a note of melons; it's medium-bodied with a crisply dry, crabapple flavour carried on lively acidity. Vintages is selling it for $21.95. An ideal partner for seafood or grilled fish. At first sip it transports you to a a tavern by the beach. That's Gaia Thalassitis Assyrtiko 2011 from Greece. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler, 680News and 680News.com. ($21.95, Vintages #315010)

Prevedello Asolo Superiore Extra Dry Prosecco 2011
Restaurateur Franco Prevedello is well known to Torontonians who care about food and wine. Through his wine lists Franco introduced us to many of Italy's greatest winemakers. And now he has his own Prosecco, grown in his home town in the hills above Venice. Prevedello Asolo Superiore Extra Dry Prosecco 2011 is almost water white in colour. It's off-dry, elegant and refreshing with good length, offering the flavour of white peaches. It sells for $19.95 at Vintages outlets. Serve it as an aperitif. That's Prevedello Asolo Superiore Extra Dry Prosecco 2011 from Italy. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler, 680News and 680News.com. ($17.95, Vintages #262881)
