  • Azienda Uggiano Prestige Chianti Classico 2015
  • Château des Charmes Cuvée Andrée Rosé 2015
  • Argento Pinot Grigio 2015
 

Azienda Uggiano Prestige Chianti Classico 2015 (Tuscany)
$16.95 (Vintages #454553)
If you like old-style Chianti then you'll really enjoy this Chianti Classico. Deep purple in colour, the wine has a spicy nose of plum, blackcurrant and cherry topped with notes of oak. It's dry, medium-bodied, beautifully balanced with a floral grace note. ***** (90)
Food match: pasta dishes; mushroom risotto

Château des Charmes Cuvée Andrée Rosé 2015 (Ontario)
$15.95 (Vintages #333260)
There's nothing like a chilled glass of rosé on a hot summer's day. This mouth-filling rosé is named for the matriarch of the Bosc family. Made from Pinot Noir, it's deep pink in colour with a spicy nose of red plums and strawberries. It's medium-bodied, just off-dry with a ripe red apple flavour. **** (88)
Food match: aperitif wine; charcuterie

Argento Pinot Grigio 2015 (Argentina)
$9.95 (LCBO #620492)
It seems everyone is making Pinot Grigio these days. Even the Argentinians. And theirs is less costly than other regions'. Pale straw in colour, this wine has a spicy, vanilla oak nose masking fruit, but once it's on your palate you experience its white peach and lemon flavours that finish dry on a mineral note with good length. **** (88)
Food match: chicken salad; grilled fish
