2012 Massolino Dolcetto d’Alba - Massolino has built a reputation as a top producer of Barolo in the commune of Serralunga d’Alba. Their wines are made in a very classic style with a rustic, old school feel to them. In tasting through their current lineup recently, this Dolcetto really stood out. Made from 25 year old vines, the soil type from the region has a heavy content of limestone. This specific soil makeup adds freshness and a distinct mineral quality to the wine. This 2012 displays a fresh, vibrant personality. It bursts from the glass with violet, floral aromatics, flavors of raspberry and bing cherry, excellent structure that builds to an attractive lingering finish. Enjoy this fantastic effort over the next 2-3 years with antipasto, salmon filet or grilled white meats. Rated 90 points by Wine Spectator. $18.99
2011 Donnafugata Sedara - In Italian, “Donnafugata” means fleeing women, hence the label showing a woman with windblown hair. In this particular instance, this evocative name refers to the flight from Naples to Sicily of Queen Maria Carolina in 1799 when Napoleon’s troops arrived. The area she sought refuge is close to the estate’s vineyards. The Donnafugata Winery was founded in 1983 by the Rallo family who had 150 years of experience in producing Marsala. Sedara is a blend of primarily Nero D’Avola, with some Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah. This is an inviting and generous red that offers plum, blueberry and black cherry fruit. Vanilla, spice and gilled herbs add complexity as they co-mingle with soft tannins and good acidity. A round, soft, lasting finish makes this a complete wine ideal for everyday comfort foods. $14.99
