Don't miss this exclusive opportunity to taste six top-rated wines from the oldest winery in Italy (and some say the second oldest winery in the world!).
The Ricasoli family has been making wine at the Castello Brolio in Tuscany since 1141 and they are known as the inventors of Chianti wines. Since 1993, Francesco Ricasoli, 32nd Baron of Brolio, has been at the helm of his family’s winery. With his vast wealth of information from past generations he always strives to uphold the quality and maintain the personality of great Brolio wines--wines which express the unique characteristics of the land and its history.
Wine Lovers of NYC will have the chance to taste some of their top wines at two exclusive tastings guided by charismatic wine expert Tony DiDio, author of The Renaissance Guide to Wine and Food Pairing on December 14 and 16. Each tasting will be for a limited number of wine lovers and will include cheeses, charcuterie and other snacks prepared by the chef at Pierre Loti Midtown.
Wines to be tasted will be:
Brolio Riserva Chianti Classico DOCG Riserva 2011 (WS rating 89)
Colledilà Chianti Classico DOCG Gran Selezione 2011 (Suckling rating 93)
