Barolo and Barbaresco reveal themselves in Brussels

On March 9th , three of the best cellars of Langhe (Grasso from Treiso, Le Strette from Novello and Socrè from Barbaresco) will be protagonists of the scheduled tasting organized, in Brussels, by Strada del Barolo and Consorzio I Vini del Piemonte for SommelItaly, the association of the Italian winelovers in Belgium.

Born on the initiative of a group of non professional sommeliers, graduated with Associazione Italiana Sommelier, the Italian sommelier association, SommelItaly is committed in spreading in Belgium the wine culture, especially the Italian one, matched with good wine.

The 9th March event will include two tastings (at 18.30 and 20.45) open to the public and guided by a skilled oenologist of Langhe who, besides the characteristics of the wines, will offer an overview on the wine culture and the tradition which marks Piedmontese production.

You will have the possibility to appreciate different vintages of Barolo and Barbaresco as well as other great Piedmontese wines such as Moscato from Asti, Barbera from Alba, Langhe Nebbiolo and the new tiny jewel of Langhe: the white Nas-Cetta.

For the Belgian winelovers this will represent an opportunity to taste some of the most noble wines of Piedmont and, exceptionally, to do it in company of the same producers who will join the oenologist to present their production.

Each tasting will take place in Sala Tintoretto (Rue Tintoret, 15/17 Bruxelles –www.salatintoretto.eu) at a cost of 40€; for information and booking: sommelitaly@gmail.com.
