Piedmont: Barolo 2007-2017 and Valchiusella toma


Pollenzo, Italy

Event local time

Sold out

A purely Piedmontese journey among Barolo vintages and the finest toma cheeses of Valchiusella produced by small, family-run farms.  

Each family works exclusively with the raw milk of their own local breed cows to make toma cheeses without the use of ferments. The wide range of aromas present come from the variety of plants which the cows graze on in pastures over 2000 meters high. The Villa family has dedicated their work to the rediscovery and promotion of this dairy heritage, made even richer by the wide panorama of sensory profiles these cheeses present. 

To pair we have two Barolo vintages, ten years apart, from three producers: San Giovanni by Gianfranco Alessandria of Monforte, Cerequio by Michele Chiarlo of La Morra, and Bricco Sarmassa by Giacomo Brezza & Sons of Barolo itself. 

We’ll taste: 

  • Barolo Bricco Sarmassa ’07 Giacomo Brezza & Figli 
  • Barolo d.o.c.g Sarmass ’17 Giacomo Brezza & Figli 
  • Barolo San Giovanni ’17 Gianfranco Alessandria
