And those of you that know me understand why we are having another vintage Piedmont wine.  Nebbiolo is my favorite grape varietal and Barolo and Barbaresco are 100% Nebbiolo!

Barbaresco and Barolo are two of the world’s most age worthy wines, but there is very little of these older vintage wines available on the open market today.   I like to compare these Italian treasures to the great wines of Burgundy, another region that has to deal with harsh conditions with a varietal that is very finicky. Nebbiolo like Pinot Noir only produces great wines in the a few areas of the world.   

These old wines are in excellent condition and to have this many 30+ year old wines for $295… did I mention this includes dinner?  How can we afford to do this??  Is Wine Watch a non-profit organization doing scientific research with wine???  Don’t ask just e-mail, call, or run to the store to make a reservation for this event, this tasting is limited to 14 tasters. 

For those of you that can’t make the tasting I have included all the Barbaresco in the store on SALE!!

The fee for this event, which includes dinner is $295 + tax, for reservations call 954-523-9463 or e-mail andy@winewatch.com.

A bit about Barbaresco in the store on SALE!!

Barbaresco is a red wine produced in northwest Italy’s Piedmont region. Made from 100% Nebbiolo, Barbaresco, like its Barolo counterpart, is a highly tannic and acidic wine that needs years of cellaring to reach harmony. Prior to being released in the market, DOCG regulations require that the wines are aged for a minimum of 26 months, with at least 9 months spent in wood barrels; for the riserva bottlings, there is a mandated period of 50 months aging, with at least 9 months spent in wood barrels. Although Barbaresco and Barolo have much in common, traditionally Barbaresco tends to express a more feminine side, while Barolo is characterized as masculine and stately—but certainly exceptions exist. Expressive aromatically, scents of dried cherry, raspberry, licorice and rose petals are typical of the wine.
