Event description

Description

Vineyards in the Langhe, Italy


This thrilling trade tasting brings together two of the greatest red wines of Italy. Barolo, from Piedmont, and Brunello, in Tuscany. These are Italy’s finest red wines, with an international profile. Thirty producers - fifteeen from each denomination - are coming together to pour their wines in London on 24th April.


ABOUT THIS EVENT

Barolo and Brunello challenge Burgundy and Bordeaux for “fine red wine” status, but awareness of their nuance, longevity and greatness is still growing. As the on-trade market for fine Italian wine has grown, and Italian wines are increasingly given more depth and respect on wine lists, this is an ideal time to present these great wines to the UK trade.

Barolo and Brunello is a trade tasting jointly organised by I Vini del Piemonte, CIA (the Italian Farmers Confederation of Alba), the Consorzio di Tutela Barolo Barbaresco Alba Langhe e Dogliani, and the Consorzio del vino Brunello di Montalcino. Their partnership aims to strengthen the export of top quality Italian wines through shared values and shared passion for the finest expressions of Italian terroir and culture.

Timings:
The trade walk around tasting runs from 12.00 to 5.00pm.
A masterclass, hosted by Sarah Abbott MW, will run from 10:30 to 12.00, and again at 2.00 to 3.30pm.
