Leonildo Pieropan 1996 Soave Classico Superiore ($11.99)
For most Americans whose entire experience of Soave is shaped by the mass-market Bolla, this fine Italian wine will come as a revelation. Clear pale gold in color, it breathes delicious scents of tangerines and honeydew melon. Crisp, fresh and tart, its citric flavor is consistent with the nose, and remains clean and refreshing in a long finish. U.S. importer: Empson (USA) Inc., Alexandria, Va. (Oct. 31, 1998)
FOOD MATCH: A natural partner with fettuccine with white clam sauce.
Mazzei Poggio alla Badiola 1996 Toscana ($12.99)
FOOD MATCH: Just right with leftover roast beef reheated Italian-style in broth with onions and garlic.
