Weekly wine picks for 8/14/05

Telmo Rodriguez Basa 2004 Rueda White $9.99

A beautiful light gold color guides the great aromatics of citrus, pears and hints of vanilla. A light bodied, crisp but reveals rich fruit in the mouth with pear, citrus and melon, wine with a zesty character.

Drink with young Mahon cheese and quince paste on fig bread

Monticelli Brothers 2002 Napa Valley Sangiovese $23.99

Not an ordinary Chianti style Sangiovese. The beautiful dark ruby garnet color is medium bodied followed by aromas of black cherry, spice, currants and dust. The palate is rich with cherries and leather with just the right amount of acidity to make it the perfect food compliment. The finish is clean, full and vibrant lingering indefinitely.

Drink with heirloom tomato/purple basil bruschetta and aged basalmic
