Gaja, Giacosa, and Conterno are special occasion producers. That’s why we turn to these lesser-known, but equally spectacular winemakers on an ordinary night.
Join us as we showcase the unknown greats of Piemonte – Barolos and Barbarescos of amazing provenance and spectacular vineyards – that our own sommeliers drink when we dine out.
Highlights include the 2000 Aurelio Settimo “Rocche”, 2006 Giacomo Fenocchio “Villero”, along with some of Piemonte’s greatest hidden gems: the 2006 Cascina Luisin “Rabaja”, the 2004 Poderi Colla “Dardi Le Rose Bussia” and 2010 Olek Bondonio “Roncagliette”! Inspired by the cuisine of the region, Chef Frank Langello has written a 7-course menu to complement the vintages.

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.
