680 NEWS wine reviews – July 14–16, 2017 

Tedeschi Capitel Nicalò 2015
Tedeschi is one of the most consistent producers of Corvina-based wines in Italy's Veneto region. This winery's Capitel Nicalò 2015, currently at Vantages outlets, is a blend of seven local grapes grown on the Moraine Hills in the heart of Valpolicella. Dense purple in colour, it has an intense bouquet of blackberries and smoky vanilla oak. Full-bodied and dry, you experience richly extracted flavours of blackberry and blackcurrant with lively acidity and a firm tannic finish. It costs $17.95 and matches well with barbecued ribs or gourmet hamburgers. That's Tedeschi Capitel Nicalò 2015 from Italy at Vintages. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler, 680 NEWS. ($17.95, Vintages #984997) (89)

Domaine de la Renne Touraine Sauvignon Blanc 2015
To celebrate Bastille Day today (July 14), here's a wine to help you storm the battlements – Domaine de la Renne Touraine Sauvignon Blanc 2015. Pale gold in colour, this wine comes on like a white Bordeaux. The nose is grassy, green plum with a light floral note. Medium-bodied and crisply dry, it offers a flavour of lychee and green plum with a lemon-lime finish. It costs a very reasonable $14.95 at Vintages outlets. Match it with asparagus or goat's cheese. That's Domaine de la Renne Touraine Sauvignon Blanc 2015 from the Loire Valley. For Post City Magazines, I'm Tony Aspler, 680 NEWS. ($14.95, Vintages #489963) (89)
