Focus on Piemonte: Barolo Tasting ($225)

  • Belcham 1177 6th ave New York, NY 10036 (map)

Join Fork and Saber as we team up with wine expert and founder of Executive Wine Seminars Bob Millman for a blue chip Barolo tasting. Bob has amassed a wealth of knowledge after decades spent in the wine industry. We are excited to join him for a passionate discussion on the most exciting wines to come out of this region. 

Piemonte is Italy’s finest wine producing region—with all due allowance to Brunello in Tuscany. By universal agreement, the best wines made in Piemonte are Barolos. Made entirely from the Nebbiolo grape, top Barolos scale the heights of noble elegance and aromatic complexity. In recent vintages, Barolos have become accessible within a few years of bottling—unlike the past when they took decades to soften up. Warmer temperatures and more selective picking of the grapes has produced richer, rounder wines than in the past. But they remain formidable wines nonetheless. Once you get used to the texture and acidity of a good Barolo you will understand why they offer something that no other red wines made on planet Earth can provide.

We explore the fascinating wines of Barolo by tasting wines—covering a decade, from such famous producers as Giacosa, Parusso, Rinaldi, Conterno, Clerico, etc. The tasting will include one of the most iconic wines made in Piemonte—The Barbaresco from Angelo Gaja. Barbaresco is the neighboring village to Barolo. Will we notice the difference? You will have to join us to find out!
