Renato Ratti Barolo ‘Conca’ 2012: (Piemonte)

This Barolo appears a deep garnet red, with delicate yet enduring traces of anise, mint and pine. It attains a full flavor, is warm and welcoming, with profound elegance and boasts beautiful, broad tannins.

The color is also a garnet red with pleasant notes of licorice, star anise and intense notes of espresso. Berry fruit is prevalent, most notably black cherry and juicy raspberry, finished with hints of balsamic. This is a polished Barolo framed in refined tannins. It exhibits impressive depth and bestows numerous layers of complexity.

Masi ’Costasera’ Amarone Classico 2011: (Veneto)
The history of the Masi family is derived from “Vaio dei Masi”, the small valley in the Valpolicella acquired by the Boscaini family at the end of the 18th century. Proud, majestic, complex and exuberant, Masi considers “Costasera’ to be their gentle giant. It appears a deep, ruby red with notes of ripe plum, baked cherries and luscious hints of coffee and cocoa. It is rich, yet balanced with graceful, supple tannins and a silky, lingering finish.
