Barolo and Brunello are out to conquer Paris

The two most prestigious banners of Italian wine production, Barolo and Brunello di Montalcino, set out to conquer France, the nation of great Bordeaux and Burgundy labels, by storming Paris via the Seine: on 7 October, ten producers from the Langhe winegrowing district and another ten from Montalcino (Castello Banfi, Canalicchio di Sopra, Col d’Orcia, Cortonesi La Mannella, Fuligni, La Fiorita, Poggio Antico, Ridolfi, Tassi, Tenuta Buon Tempo, Tenuta Fanti, Tenute Silvio Nardi, Uccelliera) were the protagonists of the Parisian edition of BaroloBrunello, with an exceptional tasting session held on board a “Bateaux-Mouche”.

Among the interesting features of the event, two master classes were held in which five Barolo wines and five different Brunello di Montalcino wines were served, with an explanation of the differences between the slopes of the two terroirs and how they affect the quality of the end-product; the tasters were invited to attempt an association between the slope/municipality/area of origin and each glass of wine.
