Vintages Wine Picks June 21, 2008

White Wine

Masi Colbaraca Soave Classico 2007, D.O.C., Veneto, Italy: Vintages Wine Panel: Masi proudly embraces the Soave DOC (while others have abandoned it) as they have found ways, within the rules, to make wines of distinction and impact. The Classico zone has a well-deserved reputation for superior Soave. Masi’s single vineyard Soave Classico is a crisp, flavorful wine that makes a great aperitif. My note: An aromatic white with vibrant citrus notes. Pair with: hor d'oeuvres, mushroom risotto. 724161 13% XD 750 mL  $16.95 Score: 89/100. June 21, 2008 Full Review Add to: Shopping List Cellar  

Red Wine

De Martino Legado Merlot Reserva 2005, Maipo Valley, Chile: Vintages Wine Panel: For their Legado series, De Martino’s winemakers focus on highlighting the natural qualities of each grape variety and encouraging the wine to express a keen sense of place. Grapes for this Merlot are grown in the alluvial soils of the Santa Inés Vineyards in the picturesque Maipo Valley. With lush black cherry and vanilla notes and deliciously smooth tannins. My note: Incredible depth and concentration. Aromas of black fruit and a velvet texture. Pair with: roast beef burritos, smoked cheeses. 59345 D 750 mL  $14.95 Score: 89/100.
