Barolo Night 4 – the wines


Jancis writes Our picture shows Barolo Night, New York, that took place last Monday night at Tribeca Grill, thanks to organisation by Chambers Street Wines, winners of our indie retailer competition back in 2014. The winner Jamie Wolff of Chambers Street (centre in the pale blue shirt in the picture on the right) came over to London to see our Barolo Night and liked it so much he thought he would import the concept to his native New York. 

As you can see, it was all very similar to the London prototype and a great deal of fun was had by all as we tried 48 Baroli from the far-from-easy 2012 vintage handpicked by Walter, seen talking about them below with me and Federico Scarzello of the Enoteca Regionale del Barolo.

We will be trying exactly the same wines in London on Sunday 20 November and thought that those lucky enough to get a ticket might like to know in advance what we will be tasting – so we are publishing the list below in place of the usual Throwback Thursday delve into our archives. 

As usual the wine will be grouped by commune (something the New Yorkers particularly appreciated, in contrast to the more usual New York events at which wines tend to be grouped by distributor), and are presented very roughly in ascending order of body and/or tannin.
