Buon Giorno a Tutti!
Benvenuta Primavera! As we welcome spring, please join us for our next Taste & Learn, which takes place on April 28 at 5 p.m. This month we will journey to Tuscany and spotlight the wines of Livio Sassetti.
The Sassetti family has been making wine for three generations. Livio was one of the founders of the Consorizio del Vino Brunello di Montalcino—the association started in 1967 between winemakers, dedicated to safeguarding their wine and on accentuating its qualities. His winery is located in Montosoli, one of the premier areas in Montalcino. Livio’s mission and passion has always been to produce wines in traditional Italian style. If you know me—you know I LOVE that about him!
Happy to present this month’s wines and menu pairings, prepared by our award-winning Chef Francesco DiCaudo:
Sassetti, Chardonnay 2016
