Anselmi 2001 "San Vicenzo" Veneto Bianco ($11.49)
Anselmi has dropped the Soave designation for this wine, which is made predominantly from the regional Garganega grape with less Trebbiano than Italian wine law requires for Soave; the wine maker feels it's better this way. Clear straw color, with gentle white fruit aromas and a crisp, citric flavor that comes across as slightly sweet, with light acidity to balance and hints of minerality and pleasant peach-pit bitterness in the finish. US Importer: Winebow Inc., NYC; Leonardo Locascio Selections. (Apr 20, 2003)
FOOD MATCH: Made a particularly good match with ham on an Easter buffet.

Wine notes in 'shelf-hanger' format:
We publish Wine Lovers' Page tasting reports in the familiar "shelf-hanger" size and format, to make it easy for wine merchants or collectors to print them out, clip and post them where this wine is displayed. We do ask, however, that the WineLoversPage.com name, logo and URL be left intact, and that these reports be used with the specific wines rated, not different bottlings or vintages.
Our tasting policy:
All my wine-tasting reports are consumer-oriented. In order to maintain objectivity and avoid conflicts of interest, I accept no free samples from wineries or distributors, purchasing all the wines I rate at my own expense in retail stores.
