Planet of the Grapes is excited to welcome Alberto Frea from Casa E. di Mirafiore for a fabuloius night of brilliant traditional Piedmont reds and of course, their wonderful Barolo wines matched with some hearty Piemontese food.
The wine making approach at Casa E. di Mirafiore is strictly traditional; long ageing in Slavonian Oak botti softens Nebbiolo’s tannins without drowning the grape’s complex aromas in wood flavours. We shall be tasting through a range of wines; starting with Dolcetto, Barbera and Langhe Nebbiolo before moving on to no less than four different Barolos. Starting with the 2012 Barolo normale; an elegant and underrated vintage; moving on to two Cru Barolos from great years; the 2010 Paiagallo, from the hill that rises above the town of Barolo itself, and 2008 Lazzarito, from what is perhaps the best known vineyard in Serralunga. To finish the dinner we shall serve a Barolo Riserva from the great 2004 vintage.
