The Barolo Masterclass 2015

October 7, 2015 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Twin Cities Wine Education LLC presents 
The Barolo Masterclass 2015
A comprehensive look at one of the top wine regions of the world
With emphasis on the stunning vintages of 2010 and 2011 
It’s one of the best known but least understood wine regions in the world. The single varietal used to make its wines, Nebbiolo, is a mystery to many. How can such a delicate looking wine have so much power? How do these wines of finesse and detail have such strength and age-worthiness? These questions, and many more, will be explored in the Barolo Masterclass.
 

We will dive deep into the topography and terroir of Barolo DOCG, covering the five key towns (Barolo, La Morra, Castiglione Falletto, Serralunga d’Alba, and Monforte d’Alba) and their surrounding vineyards. To help understand the ‘velvet fist in an iron glove’ that Barolo is, we will taste a wide range of wines including some aged gems purchased specifically for this event. This is bound to be one of the top selections of wines you will experience in 2015.
 

Additionally, we will of course discuss the deep history of the area, including their connection to Burgundy, France.
The region of Barolo is a gastronomic paradise for lovers of Italian foods, and we will cover the traditional dishes of the region. Your class packet will include great recipes that will bring Piemonte home for you.
I hope you can join us for this much anticipated class. Seating is extremely limited.
