1999 Piedmont Dinner
Tucked away in the northwest corner of Italy at the foothills of the Alps, the glories of Piedmont are numerous - rolling foothills, white truffles, and vigorous, multi-dimensional red wines made from the Nebbiolo grape. These are some of the most prestigious and collectible wines in the world—and with age, are often compared to great Burgundy.
Our dinner will focus on Piedmont's stellar 1999 vintage from some of the region’s greatest estates. Light rains in summer and a beautiful dry autumn that year helped produce well-balanced and concentrated wines with deep color and mature tannins. The '99s are just starting to open to reveal wines of great aromatic complexity and terroir distinction. This will be a superb evening of delicious wines and rustic cuisine that you won’t want to miss.
