Barolo & Beyond
Nov 12, 2020
Northwest Italy is synonymous with Piemonte. Piemonte is famous for its grippy, powerful, long lived red wines the world over! Mention Barolo and Barbaresco and heads will nod, knowingly. Here Nebbiolo is king! You’ll also find some red grapes living in the shadows including Barbera in both Asti and Alba (one of my favorites) and Dolectto, the little sweet one (in fact the opposite). These styles provide great options for a wide variety of dishes with everyday drinkability. Let’s explore northwest Italy and learn about grapes and wine styles that may be under the radar.
"Barolo & Beyond" is an online wine class comprising a comprehensive educational presentation followed by an interactive tasting component focusing on the key grapes and wine appellations of those regions considered the Italian north-west including Piemonte, Lombardia & Valle d’Aosta. Hear about unique and fascinating red grape varieties grown here beyond the more well known classics. The diversity of wine styles from this part of Italy is exciting to discover!
