680 NEWS wine reviews – May 27–29, 2016 

Tenuta Sant'Antonio Monti Garbi Valpolicella Superiore 2013
One of the most versatile wines for both red meats and rich pasta dishes is Valpolicella, which the Veneto producers are now making in a more robust style. Tenuta Sant'Antonio Monti Garbi Valpolicella Superiore 2013, currently at Vintages, is a blend of Corvina, Corvinone, Rondinella, Croatina and Oseleta. Deep ruby in colour with a mature rim, it offers a spicy, earthy nose of plums and vanilla. It's medium-bodied, with raisiny-plum flavours and a sandalwood note on the finish. It costs $19.95. Try it with mushroom risotto. It's delicious. That's Tenuta Sant'Antonio Monti Garbi Valpolicella Superiore 2013 from Italy. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler, 680 NEWS. ($19.95, Vintages #29850)

Sketches of Niagara Rosé 2015
Yes, it's rosé time, the pretty-in-pink harbinger of summer. One of the best Ontario rosés I've tried from last year's vintage is Tawse Sketches of Niagara Rosé 2015. This blend of Cabernet Franc, Pinot Noir and Merlot is deep pink in colour with a red apple and strawberry bouquet. The wine is medium-bodied, dry with a fresh and lively palate. Well-made with balancing acidity. It costs $16.95 at Vintages outlets. That's Tawse Sketches of Niagara Rosé 2015 Serve it chilled while you're waiting for the barbecue to heat up or with charcuterie or cold chicken. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler, 680 NEWS. ($16.95, Vintages #172643)
