Italiano with Veritas Wine Room in Dallas

By Hayley Hamilton Cogill |

Veritas keeps having these great wine tastings…and they are free. Wednesday night they welcome Dalla Terra, importer of classic Italian Wines, for a tasting from 6p-8p.

Co-owner Brooks Anderson sent over the following line up will be poured tomorrow. Should be a tasty one!

  • 2009 Saracco Moscato d’Asti, $14.99 – Parker gave the 2007 and the 2008 vintages of this wine 90 points and had this to say: “Simply put, Saracco is a reference-point producer for Moscato. The wines are a staple at my dinner table.”
  • 2008 Marco Felluga ‘Molomatto’, $17.99 – Parker gave the 2007 88 points and called it an “attractive, layered white” with pretty scents of “peaches, flowers and spices.”
  • 2004 Casanova di Neri Brunello di Montalcino ‘White Label’, $53.99 – Both Parker and the Wine Spectator gave this wine 91 Points. “Silky, racy tannins.” “Long and pretty.” “Made in a concentrated, opulent style.” “The long, polished finish invites a second taste.”
  • 2008 Dolcetto d’Alba ‘Tre Vigne’, $18.99 – Both Parker and the Wine Spectator gave the 2007 vintage of this Pizza Wine 88 Points.
  • 2007 Aia Vecchia ‘Lagone’, Tuscany, $15.99 – The Wine Spectator gave this wine 90 Points, saying it is “minerally and floral” with “velvety tannins and a soft, caressing finish.”
  • 2005 Baroli Barolo, $41.99 – Parker: “92 Points. The 2005 Barolo is gorgeous in its perfumed red berries, flowers and spices. This accessible, mid-weight Barolo offers tons of elegance in a delicate, accessible style . . . “
