  • Ascheri Barolo 2010
 

Vignamaggio Monna Lisa Chianti Classico 2011 (Tuscany)
 $19.95 (LCBO #378133)
It's said that Mona Lisa was born and raised on the Vignamaggio estate, and her famous la Gioconda smile graces the label. Deep, tawny ruby colour; earthy, dried cherry nose; richer on the palate than the nose suggests with flavours of mocha, cherry, vanilla oak and pencil lead finishing firmly to give the wine structure. ****½ (89)
Food match: tomato-based meat dishes; pizza

MontGras Antu Syrah 2012 (Chile)
$17.95 (Vintages #675371)
A tasty Syrah from the Colchagua Valley. Deeply coloured; savoury, blackberry nose that's replicated on the palate; full-bodied, rich, spicy and velvety. ***** (90)
Food match: pepper steak; mature cheddar

Ascheri Barolo 2010 (Piedmont)
$32.25 (until November 9th, then $35.25, LCBO #341107)
A delicious Barolo. Ruby with a tawny hue; dried cherries, leather, tobacco on the nose; dry, elegant, medium-bodied and well crafted; youthful and tight but beautifully balanced and should age very well for a decade. ***** (91+)
Food match: osso buco; game dishes
