We’re pulling out the big reds from Piedmont in Italy – Barolo and Barbaresco – tonight from 6-8pm. Come bask in the glory of the nebbiolo grape as showcased in these exquisite wines. We’ll open the Ferrando Carema Etichetta Bianca 2006 ($39), the Cantina Del Pino Barbaresco Albesani 2005 ($60) & the Paolo Conterno Barolo Ginestra 2005 ($75).
Then tomorrow, Saturday, December 18 from 5-7pm, we’ll be opening some Chateauneuf du Pape, that well-known Rhone.
We’re opening some of our more expensive wines through the end of the month because these are quite often gift wines and at least this way you’ll taste what you’re giving instead of having to hand over the bottle and ask “well . . . aren’t you going to open my gift?”
Both days Lobster Claus will be out and about on Fulton street handing out copies of parts I & II of his ‘tail.’
