680News wine reviews – March 14–16, 2014 

François Lurton Les Salices Sauvignon Blanc 2011
I find Sauvignon Blanc, of all white wines, to be the most versatile when it comes to food matching. Fish, seafood, salad and green vegetables all work well with Sauvignon Blanc. An inexpensive example is François Lurton Les Salices Sauvignon Blanc 2011 from France's Pays d'Oc region. Almost water white in colour with a lime tint, it has a grassy, grapefruit nose; it's medium-bodied with a sweet gooseberry, refreshing acidity and good length. Good value at $13.95. Serve it with seafood salad or goat cheese. That's François Lurton Les Salices Sauvignon Blanc 2011 from France. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler, 680News and 680News.com. ($13.95, LCBO #319764)

Caparzo Sangiovese Toscana 2011
For lovers of Tuscan wines, here's a wallet-friendly recommendation: Caparzo Sangiovese Toscana 2011, available at the LCBO for $12.95. The wine is deep ruby-purple in colour, which suggests good flavour extraction. It offers a nose of cherries, leather and vanilla oak. It's medium to full-bodied, dry, soft on the palate with a cherry flavour. An easy drinking wine. Match it with tomato-based pasta dishes. That's Caparzo Sangiovese Toscana 2011 from Italy. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler, 680News and 680News.com. ($12.95 – $11.95 until March 30, LCBO #361022)
