Produttori Del Barbaresco Dinner @ Scopri 14th August 2014
August 14, 2014 @ 7:00 pm - 11:00 pmFree
Your next wine adventure awaits.
In the middle of winter we are going to settle in at Scopri and drink the wonderful reds of the World’s best co-operative – Produttori Del Barbaresco. They only produce from grapes sourced within the wonderful Barbaresco DOCG appellation. You will find the wines are, first and foremost, delicious! But also they offer you amazing value when compared to similar quality wines of Piedmont. And their ability to improve in your cellar is equal to the greatest wines in the world.
On the 14th August at 7pm your journey through Barbaresco will start. For an investment of $160 per head you will get an immersion in the world of Produttori Del Barbaresco. The venue is the private dining room at Scopri 191 Nicholson St, Carlton.
This co-op has 56 members contributing 100 hectares of land (which is one sixth of the whole appellation). In a typical year 40% of their production is their Estate Barbaresco – a stunner! It is hard to imagine they make a better wine… Until you see a further 40 % is made up of their 9 Single Cru Barbaresco – these are the some of the best sites in the whole area and broadcast the personality of the appellation. The last 20% is their Langhe Nebbiolo – which is still from within Barbaresco but made up of younger vines, lesser sites and barrels not quite up to their stringent quality standards. This is the real star of the range because it is approachable young and so cheap it is just silly. Oh, and they make a Grappa di Nebbiolo!
The beauty of this dinner is it is so focussed that you will walk away with a great understanding of the region of Barbaresco. The wines you will be enjoying are listed below. In total you will try 10 Barbaresco from 8 vintages and in particular look at 3 individual Cru (vineyards). Plus you get Grappa from Produttori’s Nebbiolo marc grown in Barbaresco to finish and to start off you will be handed a glass of stunning Roero Arneis – the only wine not from the Co-op but well worth you tasting. And the perfect cleaner before you launch into 10 Nebbiolos.

Included in the price is the full Scopri experience: quality Italian food made in a slightly rustic and charming way, accompanied by some of the best wine service in Melbourne. The menu will be tailored to match the wines, extra love will be given because Anthony and Alison used to ‘quaff’ the Estate Barbaresco when they lived in worked in Piedmont for a few months.
