Today's Wine Tasting Note

Valle dell'Asso Valle dell'Asso 1997 Galatina Rosso ($8.99)
Dark garnet, with spicy aromas of cloves and nutmeg over more shy red-fruit scents. Big, ripe red-fruit flavor with just a hint of fresh-fruit sweetness easily brought in line by crisp acidity. U.S. importer: Vintner Select, Cincinnati, a Marc de Grazia Selection. (June 28, 1999)

FOOD MATCH: Demonstrating the affinity of tart Italian reds for pesto, it makes a natural marriage with a Ligurian dish of pesto over linguine, green beans and new potatoes.

Previous day's wine note

All my wine-tasting reports are consumer-oriented. In order to maintain objectivity and avoid conflicts of interest, I purchase all the wines I rate at my own expense in retail stores.
