Summary:

 

Called “the king of wine and the wine of kings,” Barolo has a big reputation. Italy’s most celebrated wine (even if Chianti is the country’s best known), Barolo’s fame stems from its evanescent palate of roses and tar, its enchanting orange-tinted crimson hue, its magical Piemontese provenance, and its outstanding ability to age. This sit-down tasting will give you the opportunity to taste six Barolos ranging in age from a few years (Aldo Conterno 2007 and Bartolo Mascarello 2006) to over a decade (Rocche dei Manzoni 1997 and Bovio 1999). Join us and let a knowledgeable IWM sommelier guide you through six Barolos, explaining the nuances of vintage, producer, style and sub-region. Spend a delightful, fun, and instructive Saturday afternoon understanding why Barolo is the wine of which legends are made, and fall in love with Barolo all over again.
