Tasting Notes on the Italian Close-Outs:

2008 Cavalier Dario Barolo 

Not so dissimilar from the the Reverdito Barolo we promoted a few weeks ago, this is another great value in Barolo that is immediately enjoyable. Leaning towards the modern side, this has solid appeal and is smooth enough to pair with a wide range of dishes. Licorice flavors are prevalent as is typical for Barolo Bottlings.

2008 Musella Valpolicella Superiore Ripasso

We’re always on the look-out for great Ripasso and the Musella’s most remarkable attribute is the tannin structure.  The refinement is unusual for a ripasso in the $27 price range, and even more impressive for $20!  The combination of mouthfeel and a hint of structure elevates this valpolicella very well, without creating any oxidized flavors or “grapey” aromas. Dense fruit, clean flavors, and a long silky finish! Interestingly, 20% of the grapes comprising this wine receives an “Amarone” treatment of drying, and 60% are co-fermented with non-pressed Amarone skins – the combination of the two creates a perfect “baby Amarone” style of wine.
