Making Dallas Even Better

Italiano with Veritas Wine Room in Dallas

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 . . . “

    Tried to go there last night but there was a major parking cluster. Had to blow it off.
