Christmas Treat; Fine Mature Barolo and Nibbles, ten wines
Christmas Treat with Fine Mature Barolo and Monika’s Christmas Nibbles
Tuesday 4th December 2012; 6.30pm
Some of the finest Barolos available; some top names, traditional and modern, and some good middle rank names; wines with plenty of bottle age (over sixteen to forty five years), wines with variety and character, plus a mixture of great and very good vintages. Nebbiolo is a grape which does not make the most immediately friendly of drinks, but given sufficient bottle age it produces wines of exceptional individuality and distinction, of both bouquet and of flavour. As we shall doubtless see.
