Sep 28, 2022 178

“Barolo en Primeur” is the International solidarity auction promoted by Cassa di Risparmio di Cuneo Foundation and CRC Donare Foundation, together with the Protection Consortium Barolo Barbaresco Alba Langhe Dogliani, to be held this year on October 28th, in the setting of Grinzane Cavour Castle.

Christie's, simultaneously with New York, will auction 14 out of the 15 barriques of the historic Vigna Gustava 2021 harvest (rated by Antonio Galloni, wine critic and CEO of Vinous, 92-94 / 100), previously owned and vinified by Count Camillo Benso, and considered an iconic location in the Langhe area. Each barrique will support a solidarity or social interest project (a year ago, the auction collected 600.000 euros).
