WHAT DO YOU LEARN IN THIS SENSORY TASTING?
an hour to learn to understand the wines of the Langa del Barolo and its most representative typical products.
A hint of dried fruit ... aromas of vanilla in barrique wines ... spicy and under the forest ... we reveal the art of tasting by learning about the descriptors of wine and the products that accompany it live.
The peculiarity of this sensory journey, which can also be purchased as part of the visit package to the Germano Angelo Winery, is the analysis of the wines with their parameters and a careful organoleptic analysis of the cheeses, cured meats, and other specialties in combination.
A description is a term used to describe a flavor or taste: floral, fruity, spicy, etc. The fruit, flowers, and spices that are mainly perceived in our wines will be available, in a site ampoules, to be smelled, memorized, and finally compared to the wine, thus giving the possibility to create a really basic sensory vocabulary, making try it live.
For cheeses, cured meats, and more, in addition to the visual analysis, the tactile quality should not be underestimated, both in consistency and in the mouth, as well as the various persistence of the ingredients on the palate. The references to the various production methods and the history of the product are also very interesting.
For the pairing between food and wine, the participant is invited to create a map of various senses to create a real sensorial profile, an excellent tool to really understand which elements of the elements harmonize tastes.
This experience cannot be missed by those who love good food as well as those who already have an olfactory vocabulary linked to the world of wine but want to deepen their knowledge of fine Piedmontese wines and analyze an interesting approach to combinations with food.

Giving a wine tasting in Barolo is a gift for the body and soul.
Often when the time comes to choose a gift (for friends or for a loved one or for a bride and groom or an anniversary), the problem is that people are already full of more or less useful objects and therefore, unless the recipient does not have a concrete need that you are aware of, it becomes very complicated to choose the right gift.
Giving an experience instead, as our proposal for a sensory tasting course can be, really allows you to donate something that will remain forever in the memory of those who receive it. The experience allows you to enrich your wealth of knowledge and allows you to spend time immersed in one of the most picturesque landscapes in Italy, the Langhe, or rather the heart of the Langhe, the Barolo area, tasting wines and typical products that envy the whole world.
It is a gift for the soul and the body. It is a thought that will be combined with a day if not an entire weekend. And whoever gives the gift will be associated with that special moment, with a memory in the heart of emotions, discovery, scents, colors and flavors.
There is no need to be a wine connoisseur or aficionado, the tasting is still interesting to discover a millenary culture.
