Fattoria Le Terrazze 1997 Rosso Conero ($10.99)
Inky dark garnet in color, almost blackish-purple. Spicy oak and fresh if simple black fruit in the aroma carry over intact on the palate, ripe and juicy, backed by lemon-squirt acidity. Good, typical Italian red table wine. U.S. importer: Vintner Select, Cincinnati. (July 17, 1999)
FOOD MATCH: A thick pan-grilled T-bone is fine with both wines, and a touch of the Marchese alla porchetta flavors - fennel and garlic - in the pan-reduction sauce elevates the match from good to joyous.
Umani Ronchi 1996 San Lorenzo Rosso Conero ($12.99)
