Twice a year Vivi and I are teaming up with our good friends Ingrid & Ulrik who share our passion for Italy, food and wine. We are living not that far from each other in both Denmark and Italy. Ingrid & Ulrik are also manufacturing their own wine at their Italian Casa, which you can see here:
And while we are at it - here is a photo of our house in Italy:
The rule is simple. We each bring two bottles of excellent Barolo or Barbaresco and then the hosts of the evening are responsible for the food. As you can see from the wine line-up we are bringing really top wines - two Barolo's and two Barbaresco's - both 100% Nebbiolo based - to the table. The wine makers are - from left:
- Barale Fratelli Castellero - Barolo 2003
- Bruno Giacosa Falletto - Barolo 2001
- La Spinetta - Barbaresco Gallina 2000
- La Spinetta - Barolo Campé 2000
We all agreed that La Spinetta Barbaresco Gallina 2000 was the most matured and balanced wine that evening.
