Wine of the Week for March 1, 2010

Citra Trebbiano d'Abruzzo 2008 - $7.45
Style: W2


Look for delicate aromas of peach, ripe apple and a hint of grass. Thepalate is very fruity with a suggestion of ripe berries, apple, citrus and tangerine atop a crisp acidity. Very good body and length, it has more guts than expected and would be a good candidate for cream sauces or parmesan. (LCBO 522144) Also comes in 1.5L (79046) for $ 12.95.

A Canadian Moment...

Pillitteri Pinot Grigio VQA 2007 - $12.95
Style: W3

Canada: Niagara

The colour here is a pale copper-peach. Rich, lively aromas of spiced apples, pear lead off, with a touch of citrus to follow. Somewhat racy with plenty of apple and peach flavour; silky smooth, and mellow. An excellent nose and more body than is typical for this grape, it’s a good candidate for gnocchi, mushroom dishes or smoked salmon. (LCBO 146787)
