Barolo & Truffle – The Joy of Piedmont
Barolo, the king of Piedmont, is powerful and rustic red with an intense and complex flavour profile. Earthy, with white pepper, tobacco and coffee aromas it pairs beautifully with tasty food, the best being truffles. This type of funghi is known for its pungent earthy character, just like Barolo. White truffles, known as Alba truffles, are from the same region and one of the highest-regarded species of truffle.
Tariq, the Private Client Manager from Petersham Cellar, will take you through some exquisite Barolos from top wineries from the region. Wines will be paired with a menu crafted by our executive chefs at The Petersham, to honour Il Tartufo d’Alba. With the truffle season in full swing, this will be the perfect opportunity to indulge yourself in a wonderful Piemontese afternoon.
