Piemonte To-Do List - Wine
Like the old saying goes, so much wine, so little time! But we are going to do our best to taste the wonderful wines that Piemonte has to offer. Here's a little background from Wikipedia.
I am hoping that Diana (of Baur B&B) will be able to arrange a winetasting at her friend Domenico's place, like Jerry and Paul did last year. It sounded like a great way to really get to know the wines at a very local level. Here is what Jerry reported on the tasting - it was one of his top five favorite things during his May 2008 trip.
Other than that, we will probably taste a lot of the Big Three B's (Barolo, Barbaresco and Barbera) and one D (Dolcetto) plus anything else we come across in our travels. I know most of the reds in Piemonte are world-class, but I want to try some of the whites too. And one other B, of course - Brachetto, a frizzante light red dessert wine.
So many wines - So little time!
