In the series that we are about to recommend you, there is one element in common, and that is the passion for culinary art.

If you’re a wine and documentary fan, you may have heard of Somm, a 2013 release about four sommeliers as they struggle for the title of Master Sommelier.

Three years later the 10-episode series entitled “Somm: Into the bottle” emerged which according to Eater: “is much more explicitly about wine and its wonders. It seeks to render these men retroactively heal by showcasing the manifold wonders of wine. ”

The seventh episode tells the story of Elio Altare, and how revolutionized Barolo by aging the wine in smaller French oak barrels rather than large one, a technique he picked up in Burgundy. The risk came with sacrifices: his father hardly spoke to his son after that change.
