Velletri - Terre Dei Volsci

Real Canadian Liquorstore - $11.59

Rating: 7.5/10

Wow, this wine had been sitting in the cellar for about three years. A very nice grapey, fruity bouquet. Full flavoured but not crass. You could drink this with a meal of beef or sip with aged cheddar. Very good, I will be looking for more of this to lay down in the cellar.

Segura Viudas (2000)

Real Canadian Liquorstore - $9.89

Rating: 7/10

This is a fairly average european style dinner wine. It would go well with barbequed pork chops or chicken. Right out the cellar it was a bit flat, but with some air and warmth it improved. I would buy this wine again - another good value wine.
