Produttori del Barbaresco Tasting
@ Del Posto Restaurant, NYC (3/9/2012)

This dinner was organized by Mannie Berk of The Rare Wine Co in Sonoma, CA.

Here is their email announcing this dinner:

THREE YEARS AGO at Convivio in New York, we hosted an unforgettable Produttori dinner with Aldo Vacca, celebrating the Produttori's 50th Anniversary. If you were there that night, we're sure you'll never forget it.

So, here's the great news: Aldo's coming back to New York in March and will join us for another epic dinner, this time at Del Posto.

Like all of our wine dinners, you will have the chance to explore wines and vintages rarely seen these days … and to do so in a way that allows revealing comparisons between vineyards and years.

Our two-part line-up on March 9th promises to be epic. First, …

A Rabają Riserva Vertical

First, we will have a vertical of a minimum of nine vintages of the Produttori's most revered cru, Rabają, from 1978 to the present, including legends like 1985, 1989, 1996, 2001 and 2004.

1978 Produttori Horizontal

Then, we will use the 1978 Rabają to kick off a very rare 1978 Produttori Horizontal, expected to include the following seven wines:

1978 Rabają Riserva
1978 Asili Riserva
1978 Moccagatta Riserva
1978 Ovello Riserva
1978 Rio Sordo Riserva
1978 Montestefano Riserva
1978 Barbaresco

The cost of all of this, including a four-course tour de force dinner from one of New York's top kitchens, is just $395, including wine, tax and gratuity. But space is extremely limited.
