Rare Wine Dinner
Thursday, January 31, 2019, 6:30pm
The Rooftop at The NoMad, New York City
La Festa del Barolo 2019 begins on Thursday, January 31 with the Rare Wine Dinner, which continues our series of historic tastings exploring the great estates of Piedmont. This year’s Rare Wine Dinner, a vertical tasting of Giuseppe Rinaldi's super-rare Barolo Riserva Brunate from 1978 to 2010, will be held at The Rooftop at The NoMad Hotel NYC. The wines will all be served from magnum or 1.78-liter bottiglione, a traditional Piedmontese large format that is no longer in use. Rinaldi fans will know that the tiny production of pure Brunate is mostly held in the family’s private reserve and sold to a few long-time customers. Marta and Carlotta Rinaldi will be present to celebrate the memory of their father, who passed away earlier this year.
