With TOMASO PEPITONE (L) Robert D and MYSELF (R)
SLOW WINE NEW YORK 2018
Long One of The World’s Great BAROLO HOUSES
They Did Not Disappoint
Antica Casa Scarpa
The House of ANTICA CASA SCARPA was for me the overall winner as far as having the Best Selection on their table. It was Amazing, starting with : Barbera d Asti “La Bogliona” , a wonderful Brachetto Secco (Dry Brachetto) and the undisputed Winner of The Event, The Barbaresco Casa Scarpa 1989 was Kick Ass and probably the Best Wine I’ve Had so far this year (2018). I really enjoyed the tasting at this table, it was superb.
Ran into my Old Buddy ALEX at EATALY
Alex and I Opened DEL POSTO Back in 2006
ALEX was a Valued SOUS CHEF and BANQUET CHEF
While I was The MANAGER of The ENOTECA at DEL POSTO
We Worked Dam Hard and Had Fun Working Together along
with The Great MARK LADNER who was The EXECUTIVE CHEF
at DEL POSTO
The BUSSIATTA PASTA con SALSICCIA e RAPINI made by Alex and his team and was out of this World. So good that I had 5 portions over the course of 5 hours, along with , #ProsciuttoDiParma MORTADELLA , PECORINO , and SALAMI and GORGONZOLA . “I kept going back to the Bussiatta.” Awesome !!!
BAROLO “CANNUBI” BARALE FRATELLI 2013
This BAROLO was Awesome and one of my favorites of the Event. Quite Delicious and perfectly in balance, this was Text Book Barolo at its Best. Bravo Barale Fratelli, you’ve done a great job with this one.
