Fattoria Selvapiana-Vendemmia-Chianti Rufina-Italy-2006-$15.99-A nose of sweet spice,  medium ruby in color.  A smooth, medium bodied very food friendly red.  Black cherries, minerals, leather and spice, a good value.    I trended more towards Parker’s rating than Spectator’s.            RP-90           WS-85             CR-4-4.5              Good with veal, salads, pasta.

Chateau Teyssier-Saint-Emilion-Grand Cru-France-2006-$14.88-A nose of dark fruit and spice, dark ruby in color.  A full bodied red that got better as I drank it over three days, needs time to open at first.  Blackberry, licorice, earth, dry with good acidity.               RP-90              WE-88             WS-85              CR-4                 Good with steak, ribs, pasta.
