  • Fabiano Valpolicella Ripasso Classico Superiore 2010
 

Strewn Terroir Sauvignon Blanc 2011 (Ontario)
$17.95 (Vintages #343897)
Straw-coloured with a nose of lanolin, cut grass and grapefruit zest; on the palate, medium-bodied, dry, grassy, gooseberry and grapefruit flavours predominate. Very fresh and lively with zesty acidity and perfect for seafood dishes. ****+ (89)
Food match: Caesar salad; goat cheese

Montes Twins 2011 (Chile)
$12.95 (LCBO #352054)
I'm not often swayed by label designs but I couldn't resist picking up a bottle with its hilarious drawings by British cartoonist Ralph Steadman. Twins refers to the bend of Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon from Chile's Colchagua Valley. Dense purple in colour, the bouquet is spicy blackcurrant and blackberry backed by vanilla oak – flavours that fill the mouth. **** (88)
Food match: lamb dishes; or beef

Fabiano Valpolicella Ripasso Classico Superiore 2010 (Veneto)
($17.95, LCBO #338350)
A well-priced ripasso with lots of flavour. Deep ruby colour with a nose of cherries and evident oak; ripe plum and black cherry flavours carried on lively acidity within a firm structure. **** (88)
Food match: osso buco; game pâté
