Wine Class: Nebbiolo Outside of Barolo & Barbaresco

Thursday, June 21   |   6:00 pm

Price: $45

Whenever the Nebbiolo grape is brought out in conversation among wine lovers, one cannot help but immediately associate the grape to its region – in Piedmont, Italy. It is in Piedmont that Nebbiolo produces the famed wines from Barolo and Barbaresco – wines that are often drunk years after it has been produced to mellow out its rigid tannins and develop a flavor and aromatics that cannot be compared to anything else. But this grape is also found in other parts of Italy in different iterations – some in softer, lighter styles from Gattinara, some redolent of alpine flavors coming from high up in the mountains of Lombardy and Valle d’Aosta, and some with its characteristic high acid but with a more forgiving tannin structure than can be drunk earlier from Roero.

$45 includes wine, tasting course, service fee and tax. Reservations open for this class on April 1st.
