Barolo and Castelmagno: the King of Wines Marries the King of Cheeses – Sold out
Pollenzo-Banca del Vino
Barolo 2010 has been recognized by international critics as the finest vintage of the new millennium so far. We’ll be tasting six grand crus from the Langhe region: Brunate of La Morra Oddero, Cannubes of Barolo Damilano, Ciabot Mentin Ginestra of Monforte d’Alba Clerico, Prapò of Serralunga d’Alba Schiavenza, Ravera of Novello Elvio Cogno and Bricco Boschis of Castiglione Falletto Cavallotto. They will accompany various types of Castelmagno d’Alpeggio (Slow Food Presidium), one of the great Italian cheeses. Giorgio Amedeo, a connoisseur of this legendary product, illustrates the facets of every Mountain Castelmagno being tasted, according to their maturity as well as the diversity and height of the grazing pasture.
Six kilometers from Bra, Pollenzo is the other main hub of Cheese 2017 activities. A special shuttle service will take you from Bra to Pollenzo, so you can create your own program and move around easily without using your car.
