Best of Italy – A Barolo Smackdown Wine Dinner – February 24

Posted on

Friday, February 24 we welcome back Stan “The Wine Man” Lalic for another of his “Best of Italy” Series – a “Barolo Smackdown.” This fantastic dinner is a fitting sequal to Stan’s December “Barbaresco Smackdown.”

We will feature two Barolo’s per course, each rated better than 90 points – with most of the wines rated “95” or better! Eight high-end Barolo’s to be savored next to Chef Mark’s creations!

Stan’s “Best of Italy” series has enjoyed a great run at The Carlton and we are proud that his dinners continue to please our guests! Please join us for a wonderful evening!
