Do you like wine?
Do you like trying new wines and learning about them?
So do we. We are starting up the ultimate Wine Tasting Group at Bello.
In each tasting, guests will experience a broad sampling of wines from a specific category to gain an understanding of the different styles of wines from different producers and discuss what characterizes and differentiates wines of that region.
We are beginning with Barolo.
What to Bring?
For those of you who have Barolo bottles in your cellar, you are welcome to bring them to share. If not, Total Wine (in our center), Hi-Time and Wine Exchange all have many examples of Barolo to choose from.
2016 is considered one of the best vintages in the past decade. 2013 and 2010 are also excellent vintages.
To ensure a good tasting experience for all of our guests, we politely request that each bottle cost a minimum of $50.
We have prepared a meal that is specifically designed to go well with Barolo. The snacks will be consumed during the initial tasting, with the meal to follow.
(For the table)
Beef Tartare crostino, "Potato Croquette" egg foam
Quince & Gorgonzola Tartlets
