db recommends: Vintage Launch: Barolo Barbaresco Langhe Nebbiolo 2021By Christian Smith
A comprehensive tasting of more than 120 of the finest and most sought-after Barolo and Barbaresco is taking place tomorrow (Wednesday 15) in London.
Taking in the latest vintages to hit the UK market including 2017 Barolo, 2018 Barbaresco and Langhe Nebbiolo and Nebbiolo d’Alba from the 2018, 2019 and 2020 vintages.
Matteo Ascheri, president of the consorzio said of the showcase:
“The UK has always been the international reference point and the most important market for the highest quality wines in the world.
“The UK market has a deep knowledge of the Langhe wines, and historically it is a competitive place where you can find the largest offer of fine wine in the world.
“It is an essential market if you want to confront yourself with the rest of the world and where you simply have to be present.”
“Tastings and presentations such as organised by Walter and Jane are fundamental in the education and information on the world of Barolo, Barbaresco, Langhe Nebbiolo d’Alba, its terroirs, its diversity of styles and the people behind Nebbiolo,” he added.
The event is being run by the Consorzio of Barolo, Barbaresco, Alba, Langhe & Dogliani and Italian wine event specialist Hunt & Speller, run by Walter Speller and Jane Hunt MW, with the aim of shining a light on the region and its wines.
The tasting will take place from 10am until 9pm on 15 September at Church House Westminster, Deans Yard, London SW1P 3NZ.
