Barolo and Barbaresco 'have similarities with Burgundy'
The Italian wines of Barolo and Barbaresco have a number of similarities with Burgundy, an expert has noted.
Writing about his experiences at the Nebbiolo Primi, Indian Wine Academy president Subhash Arora said pricing, terroir and micro-climates between the regions are alike.
"If the sounds of Cotes de Nuits and Cotes de Beaune bring music to your ears, you will be at home in Barolo and Barbaresco," added Mr Arora.
Speaking to vintner Pietro Ratti, he was told that the work of French-style sub-zoning has already been completed in Barbaresco and Mr Ratti is hopeful that the process will also be applied to Barolo by the end of the year.
The Gianni Gagliardo Barolo 2004 Riserva was among the critic's top wines tasted at the event, while Giacomo Fennochio, Franco Conterno and Massolino also impressed.
In a separate article, Mr Arora recommended always pairing nebbiolo - the grape used in Barolo and Barbaresco - with the right food in order to fully enjoy it.
