Available at the LCBO:
Divici Organic Prosecco DOC Spumante
Veneto, Italy
LCBO#: 16395, $17.95 SHOP »»
The shape of this bottle is designed to recall ancient Roman columns in honour of the people who first brought winemaking to what is now Italy. This Prosecco pours a light straw and shows a gentle fizziness. It has aromas of lemon zest and flavours of peach and green apple. Enjoy chilled before a meal as an apéritif.

Vignerons de Buxy Buissonnier Montagny 2018
Burgundy, France
VINTAGES#: 382879 , $20.95 SHOP »»
Montagny is situated at the southern end of Burgundy's Chalonnaise region. The vines are grown in chalky clay, and the wines produced are great values. This one is raised entirely in stainless steel to preserve even the most delicate floral and fruit characteristics. Expect a fresh, balanced wine crafted in a fruity but elegant style that has broad appeal, with tones of apple and lemon citrus, a touch of mineral and a sleek texture. Great with seafood or chicken.

"This delivers year after year. [...] the poise is almost perfect, delivering fairly ripe yellow apple/peachy fruit with a hint of background toast and vanillin. It is mid-weight, fresh yet creamy with fine, firm minerality at its core. The focus and length are excellent." Score: 90 Pts. - David Lawrason, Tasted October 2021.

Reserva De La Tierra Curious Rosé
Penedès, Spain
LCBO#: 17902 , $12.45 SHOP »»
Grenache and Tempranillo provide the brilliant pale ruby colour of this aromatic Spanish rosé. With intense aromas of cherries and strawberries on the nose, the palate offers nicely balanced acidity and a long, clean finish. Enjoy with olives before a meal, or with grilled shrimp.

Marotti Campi Orgiolo Lacrima di Morro d'Alba Superiore 2017
Le Marche, Italy
VINTAGES#: 17676, $18.75 SHOP »»
"I remember the first time I tasted this delightfully fragrant red from Marotti Campi some 15 years ago in Le Marche, and I'm so pleased to see it here in Ontario. For those unfamiliar with the grape — Lacrima di Morro D'Alba — it's a very floral variety, almost black Muscat-like, with pronounced rose petal and violet perfume, also abundantly fruity, moving from black raspberry and cherry into blueberry. It's oddly reminiscent of Touriga Nacional from the Douro Valley/Dão in Portugal, only more floral and intense. The palate is firm and juicy, with bright, crunchy acids and light but dusty-grippy tannins. It's designed to be enjoyed with a light chill to emphasize the fruity-floral notes and maximize the inherent freshness, but not so cold as to mute the aromatic display. Definitely worth a look." Score: 90 Pts. - John Szabo, MS, Tasted June 2021.

Zenato Valpolicella Superiore 2018
Veneto, Italy
VINTAGES#: 995704, $18.95 SHOP »»
"Pleasant nose of ripe plums, together with hints of fresh cherries, black pepper, aromatic herbs and prunes. Full-to medium-bodied with a good bead of sweet fruit, riding firm, silky tannins. Long, controlled and well-balanced finish. Drink or hold." Score: 92 Pts. - James Suckling,
