When the humble, yet masterful British wine writer Harry Waugh was asked, when was the last time he had confused Bordeaux and Burgundy, he famously replied, “not since lunch.” Ask a 21st century American somm that question about Barolo and Brunello, and they may well respond “not since the last blind tasting.” This Italian conundrum has manifested itself on Court of Master Sommelier exams and was even documented in the first “Somm” movie.

Italian wine industry veteran Lars Leicht will guide a panel of experts to unravel the similarities and differences between Italy’s two “Big Bs” through blind tasting of both iconic and lesser known examples from the two denominations and their respective terroirs. Will you be able to call it?
