REVISITING 2001: BAROLO’S VINTAGE OF THE DECADE?
Monday, July 24th
The 2001 growing season was perfect for Nebbiolo: hot days and cool nights. As a result, 2001 in Barolo was one of the most complete vintages in the past three decades.
Join us as we pour the best of the best from the region’s undisputed five key communes: La More, Barolo, Castiglione Falletto, Serralunga d’Alba, and Monforte d’Alba.

WHAT IS VINTAGE BABBO?
On select Monday evenings, we invite Italian wine lovers to join us for a special tasting menu paired with the best vintage wines from the depths of our cellar. Unlike many restaurant wine dinners, these are not distributor-sponsored events featuring “current-release” wines. The allure of Vintage Babbo is that it’s a personal expression of the restaurant; an opportunity for us to dig deep into our cellar (as much as it may sometimes hurt to see these wines leave); and an excuse to share the best of the best with our customers.
