1999 Barolo Dinner
@ Chez Goldberg, Greenwich Village, NYC, 4/2/2022

A group of Barolo lovers got together at the home of Ben & Wendy to enjoy a set of 1999 Barolo. All the food was prepared by Ben & Wendy and was wonderful as always.

All the wines:

Jared opens the Champagne:

Manchego, brie, nuts, dates, and olives.

Flight 1: Barolo & Castiglione Falletto
Steve's homemade prosciutto, speck, and culatello with Ben's homemade baguette.

Flight 2: Barolo & La Morra
Pappardelle Bolognese [Pappardelle ai Funghi for the vegetarians].

Flight 3: Giacosa Falletto MGA
Chicken Marsala with mushrooms and shallots.

Flight 4: G. Conterno Francia MGA
Eggplant Parmigiana. This was made for the vegetarians, but I had some with this last flight and it was delicious.


1999 is clearly a very strong vintage, especially in Serralunga d'Alba.
