Vertical Tasting

Di Barrò: Vertical Tasting Mayolet Vallée d’Aosta 2011-2022

The rare Mayolet grape of Italy’s Valle d’Aosta gives delightfully fresh, moderately aromatic red wines that are quite unlike any other Italian wine you can think of. Ian D’Agata writes us a vertical of the Di Barrò Mayolet wine, the first time a complete vertical of the present decade’s wines has been published.

Paolo Saracco Moscato D’Asti and Moscato D’Autunno 1995-2022

Paolo Saracco is the recognized master of Moscato d’Asti. His wines are the equivalent of what Rolls-Royce is to cars or Beluga to caviar. Editor-in-Chief Ian D’Agata first organized a vertical tasting of these wines something like six years ago: this is the second such vertical tasting he has put together, and it confirms the outstanding impressions the wines had left everyone with in the audience back then.
