Vecchia Barolo and Barbaresco dinner at Scopri this Friday night….

In a few days time, a group of twelve Italian wine lovers will head to Scopri to try some of Italy’s great producers stretching back to 1941. Over the last couple of years I have access to some pretty amazing bottles of Barolo and Barbaresco and it will be good to showcase these wines in one sitting.

This is the line up of wines on the night:

2001 Ca Del Bosco Anna Maria on arrival.

Bracket One 

MONFORTINO 1941 G.CONTERNO

MONFORTINO 1952 G.CONTERNO

Bracket Two

BAROLO 1955 RISERVA G.BORGOGNO

BAROLO 1962 RISERVA G.BORGOGNO

Bracket Three

BARBARESCO 64 RIS. FASCETTO MINUTO

BARBARESCO 67 RIS.RABAYA’ PRODUT.

BARBARESCO 70 RIS. OVELLO PRODUT.

Bracket Four

BARBARESCO 1974 PRODUTTORI

BARBARESCO 1974 JEROBOAM PRODUT.

Bracket Five

BAROLO 1976 RISERVA G.BORGOGNO

BARBARESCO 1976 BRUNO GIACOSA BAROLO

1986 BRUNATE CERETTO

To finish:

PAOLO SARACO MOSCATO D’ASTI 2011 (Out of Magnum)

It should be a great night and fingers crossed that all the wines look good. It will be fascinating to see Monfortino at seventy years of age. Same goes with the number of back vintage Produttori and Borgogno. Each flight will be matched with a dish and knowing how good the team at Scorpi are, it should be a match made in heaven.

On Sunday, I will give a full wrap of the wines and the night.
