Wine of the Week for June 18, 2007

FOLONARI SOAVE 2005 - $10.30
Style: W2
Italy: Veneto

The weather's warm so it's time to break out the traditional lunch-time wines. The rich citrus notes here suggest lemon and orange zest, with traces of almond and grass just under the surface. The pleasantly tart palate is quite delicate, sowing baked lemon, a bit of apple, and a nippy acidic close. Body and length are both quite good. Try with simple Tuscan-inspired sandwiches, lunchtime pizza or risotto. (LCBO 176461)
