Double Zero Napoletana Winemaker Dinner Castello di Verduno
Double Zero Napoletana
Castello di Verduno
November 11, 2015
Wednesday, November 11th I'll host winemaker Mario Andrion of Castello di Verduno at restaurant
Double Zero Napoletana in Sandy Springs as he guides us through a seated dinner paired with a range of his
wines. We'll also be joined by Marcella Bianco daughter of the owners of the property.
Castello di Verduno is in the much enviable position of owning vineyards in both Barolo and Barbaresco.
We'll taste a beautiful array of wines to include a rare white wine made from a red grape, a red wine unique to
the Verduno township of Barolo made from the Pelaverga grape, one of the best single vineyard Barberas I
know of - the "Bricco del Cuculo", a 2008 Barbaresco from the "Faset" cru, and the winery's flagship wine the
2008 Barolo Riserva from "Monvigliero", one of the most highly regarded crus in all of Barolo.
Castello di Verduno is one of my favorite producers of Barolo and Barbaresco. Staunch traditionalists
employing long fermentations/vatting and only large Slavonian oak casks. The purity and inherent character
of each terroir shine through in the wines with great clarity. And 2008 was a beautiful vintage for the
Piedmont making wines with Burgundian like complexity and perfect balance. Following is the menu, wines
to be poured and retail pricing.

I hope you can join me for this wonderful wine dinner featuring one of the most authentic estates of the
Piedmont. The most fun I have is setting these up - and then eating and drinking at them, especially with
wines this good and the winemaker on board to boot!
