I am hosting a smaller wine tasting on Saturday. We will be drinking a mixed lot of some vintage piemonte I purchased on an auction a couple of months ago:
1982 Fontanafredda Barolo
1990 Paolo Scavino Barolo
1990 Seghesio La Villa Barolo
1993 Bartolo Mascarello
1990 Pio Cesare Barbaresco
2005 Produttori del Barbaresco, Barbaresco
We are only going to be three people in total and would like to enjoy the bottles over a longer period of time. I don't have experience with opening this amount of older bottles in one tasting for this this small of a group. Essentially I am looking for any advice and guidance on how you would do it?
- Sequence of opening. Would you open all wines at once, or should they opened separately over time ?
- Sequence of tasting
- Any of them you would decant?
- Anything else I am missing?
Looking forward to some input!
