Low-fat Haagen-Dazs? In several instances, it really was too good to be true, the Federal Trade Commission says. Haagen-Dazs Co., which built its reputation on rich, creamy frozen desserts, agreed Monday to settle FTC charges that it made false and misleading statements about its frozen yogurt products. The company, based in Teaneck, N.J., advertised its frozen yogurt products last year as "low fat" and "98 percent fat free."

Mt. Palomar Winery in Temecula harvested a small quantity of Sangiovese grapes in September, and will make a red wine out of the grape of the Chianti region of Italy. Peter Poole, general manager of the winery in southern Riverside County, said the winery crushed 1.5 tons of the variety, yielding just more than four barrels of wine. Mt. Palomar grafted somewhat over an acre of vines to Sangiovese in 1989 and got a small crop in 1990. Very little Sangiovese is planted in California.
