Barolo Boys May 11, a mother of all Nebbiolo tastings with Franciacorta curated by @TerraUomoCielo

From the department of “wish you were here” “wish I could be there”…

There’s a new wave of young Langarolo producers who have returned to the old “traditional” style of Nebbiolo (that I prefer): wholesome farming practices, minimal-intervention vinification, and large-cask aging.

Many of them are the children of Barolo’s marquee names. And many of them have diverted their families’ wineries from the path of modernism.

My close friend and Franciacorta winemaker Giovanni Arcari has curated a portfolio of some of his favorite producers in Franciacorta to be presented May 11 together with the Nebbiolo at a mother of all tastings in Monforte d’Alba.

Man, I wish I could be there…

  1. Seriously, man. What is it about May 11? Barolo Boys AND 7 Percent Solution?
    A great day for tastings. I sure hope it’s a “fruit” day…
    In any case, I’ll be on the beach. :)
