Conte Zandotti 1997 Frascati Superiore ($8.99)
Clear pale gold, with simple citric and dry-straw aromas. Crisp, fresh but rather neutral white fruit and zippy acidity come together in a palatable if forgettable wine that's good for washing down food. U.S. importer: Pellegrini Vineyards, South San Francisco, Calif. (Aug. 5, 1999)
FOOD MATCH: In a not-too-surprising cross-cultural match, this wine went very nicely with a Cantonese stir-fry of chicken and ginger with lemon wedges.
Gini 1998 Soave Classico Superiore ($10.99)
FOOD MATCH: Both Soaves made a reasonable ethnic match with a family favorite, ossobuco bianco, veal shanks long-braised in white wine and finished with a gremolata of lemon peel, parsley and garlic.
Bolla 1998 "Tufaie" Soave Classico ($10.99)
