17:00 p.m. The perfect pair. Guided tasting of wine and food
WHAT CAN YOU LEARN IN THIS SENSORY TASTING?
one hour to learn how to understand the wines of the Langa del Barolo and its most representative typical products.
Hint of dried fruit ... aromas of vanilla in barrique wines ... spiced 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 be combined with a visit to the cellar at 11:00, is the analysis of wines with their descriptors and a careful organoleptic analysis of cheeses, cured meats, and other paired specialties.
A descriptor is a term used to describe a flavor or taste: floral, fruity, spicy, etc. The problem that newbies encounter is not understanding what these descriptors really are or not having an olfactory memory. The fruit, flowers, and spices that are mainly perceived in our wines will be available, in special ampoules, to be smelled, memorized, and finally compared to wine, thus giving the possibility to create a real own basic sensory vocabulary, by having the descriptors try out live.
For cheeses, cured meats, and more, in addition to the visual analysis, the tactile one should not be underestimated, both in texture 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 combination of food and wine, the participant is invited to create a map of the various senses to create a real sensory profile, an excellent tool to really understand which elements contribute to harmonizing 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.
An experience of great value for the knowledge of wine and its combinations.

CAN I BUY IT AS A GIFT?
Certainly, indeed, it is a really nice thought for all those who want to have an experience that enriches their cultural background and knowledge of the vast and incomparable Italian food and wine panorama.
Here is a link to buy a voucher online for the sensory course of wine tasting in comfort and give it away, the voucher will be sent to you automatically and above all it does not expire, it will then be gifted to who decides, calmly when contacting us to participate.
Giving a wine tasting in Barolo is a gift for the body and soul.
Often when it comes time 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 has a concrete need that you are aware of, it becomes very difficult to choose the right gift.
Giving an experience on the other hand, as our proposal for a sensory tasting course can be, really allows you to give 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.
