Gini 2004 Soave Classico ($13.99)
A glint of gold adds brightness to this wine's clear straw color. White fruit aromas focus on ripe melon with a distinctly musky hint of canteloupe. Musky melon flavor follows the nose, rather full-bodied for a Soave, melon all but masking a touch of bitter almond in the finish. US Importer: Vintner Select, Mason, Ohio, and other regional importers. (Jan 31, 2006)

FOOD MATCH: Fine with an East Chinese stir-fry of pork and broccoli with ginger and garlic.



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 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.
