Wine Dinner with Valter Scarbolo, June 19th, at Empire State South

Good ol’ Valter.  
Pretty much everyone that meets Valter Scarbolo seems to fall in love with him.  He’s just one of those personalities.  There are the big bear hugs, the kisses on the cheek.  Master Sommelier Bobby Stuckey named his Boulder, Colorado restaurant directly after Valter’s restaurant in Lauzacco, La Frasca, around which Valter appears to be the unofficial mayor of the village.  Valter’s wines are equivalent charmers, ranging from terrific everyday expressions of typical Friulian forms (like the Sauvignon or the Cabernet) to impressive examples of a distinctive winemaking mind (like the coppery Ramato XL or the rich, intriguing blend, My Time).  His Refosco is one of the best examples I’ve tasted of that indigenous Friulian grape, rustic and brawny.  In all cases, however, Valter and his wines are the kinds of special beings you need to meet, and spend some quality time around.
