Discover the pleasure of country wine from Italy's most compelling region as USQ goes Beyond Barolo. While Nebbiolo is the undisputed heavyweight of Piedmont's vinous landscape- used to craft the ageworthy wines of Barolo and Barbaresco- a separate cast of characters from the region continues to garner praise and recognition for their everyday appeal. The varieties of Barbera and Dolcetto should resonate with most as New York Times wine writer Eric Asimov has been largely responsible for brightening the spotlight on these expressions from Alba, Asti, and Dogliani. More esoteric cuvées of Grignolino, Freisa, and Pelaverga are starting to appear on restaurant lists and wine racks as well. With attractive price tags and compelling palates, this world beyond Barolo is worth exploring.
Join us for an afternoon delight of bottlings from Giuseppe Mascarello, Brovia, Roagna, Oddero, Gillardi, Burlotto, Cappellano, and more! Recent NY Times best-of-tasting Einaudi Dolcetto di Dogliani 2010 will be one of many featured wines perfect for the winter season's bounty.
Admission to this tasting is FREE, and reservations are not required!
