Super Brunello tasting: Soldera, Biondi Santi...

Next Thursday, we will hold a new tasting of Italian wine. This time, some of the best Brunello di Montalcino will be the stars of the evening.

We have selected also some major vintages of the last 20 years, in order to verify the ageing potential of the Brunello produced in 1990 and 1997.

The palette of Brunello is impressive indeed, since Soldera (Case Basse Riserva), Biondi Santi, Poggio all'Oro, Valdicava, Castelgiocondo (Riserva Ripe al Convento) will be poured during the evening.

About 7-8 wines will be opened, as usual during our events, with 12-13 participants, already very familiar with our tastings.

Parma ham, cheese and a risotto will be the perfect partners for this evening.

Here is a more detailed list of the wines:

Poggio Antico - Riserva 1990
Valdicava - 1999
Mastrojanni - 1997
Castelgiocondo - Riserva Ripe al Convento 1999
Banfi - Poggio all'oro 1990
Biondi Santi - 2001
Soldera - Case basse Riserva 2001

We'll see the impressions of the evening next week.
