Barolo and Brunello challenge the greats of 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 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.
A full list of participating producers and wines will be published shortly.
The trade walk around tasting runs from 12pm to 6pm. A masterclass, hosted by Sarah Abbott MW, will run from 10:30am to 12pm, and again from 2pm to 3:30pm.
This event is for members of the wine trade and press. We reserve the right to request appropriate credentials.
