help me pair a wine with lamb ragu

We're making a slow cooked lamb ragu. Aside from the lamb,the recipe includes some tomato paste, beef stock, mushrooms, sage, garlic, orange zest, balsamic vinegar, onion and red pepper flakes. It is served over rigatoni.

We have a 1999 Vino Nobile di Montepulciano (Salcheto) and a 2001 Barolo (Paolo Scavino). We also have several Argentine Malbecs and a variety of Calif. Zins and Cab Francs. Obviously I'm leaning toward the Italian bottles. We need to put some in the crock pot, so we will probably need to open 2 bottles for dinner. What would be your choice?
