An evening at Savoy Hotel, dedicated to the king of Piedmontese vines, in its various forms: Barolo, Barbaresco and Roero.
Also in 2019, last May 21th, in Rome, Go Wine offered us the opportunity to taste the products of numerous – about 30 – Nebbiolo based wine cellars. An opportunity particularly appreciated by those who, like us, love this type of wines. It’s, of course, just a “cross-section” of the immense and variegated Piedmontese production, which counts hundreds and hundreds of companies devoted to the cultivation and preservation of these grapes which, luckily for us, give such extraordinary results.
Having also been present at last year’s edition – we talked about it HERE – this time we wanted to dedicate ourselves to some cellars not previously tested or, we tasted different vintages of already known wines. Last but not least, we have reserved a report also to some valuable white wines, coming from the same production areas.
Let’s start by talking about Beni di Batasiolo – which our readers already know, even for participating in our Italian Rosé Special – of which we particularly liked the Dogliani – you are right, this was not a Nebbiolo but a great Dolcetto – besides an excellent Barolo Briccolina 2013.
Also present this year Roberto Sarotto and here we have discovered precisely, some notable white wines such as the Chardonnay Puro and above all, the Arneis Runcneuv. The Langhe Rosato obtained from Nebbiolo in purity is also worthy of note.
To end with the whites wines, we mention the good Riesling 2017 produced by Bric Cenciurio.
Back to Nebbiolos, it is worth mentioning the following wines :
Silvano Bolmida: Barolo Bussia 2015
Bricco Maiolica: Barolo Contadin 2015
Cà Nova: Ghemme 2011
Nebbiolo Carema Wine Producers Cellar: Carema Classico 2015
Cordero di Montezemolo: Langhe Nebbiolo 2017
Moccagatta:Barbaresco Basarin 2015
Moscone: Barolo Bussia 2011
Finally, thanks to the presence of Antica Distilleria Sibona …. we could taste a spectacular Barolo Chinato original recipe.
Of course, we do not expect in cases like this to have fully dealt with the subject, but this is not our aim. In fact, the mission we have set ourselves is always to research and discover valuable products, following our (very personal) inclinations, our tastes and instincts …. to report what we consider worthy to our readers. Not a dogma of course, but a food for thought, an indication, a minimum of guideline, to begin to orientate in vast, almost infinite fields … like the Italian wine production.
