Super Tuscan dinner Wednesday May 9
Above: The “old vines” used to produce Sassicaia’s legendary wines are situated on hillsides overlooking the Tuscan coast in Bolgheri. We will be tasting one of the estate’s wines on Wednesday, May 9.
Siena’s next wine dinner, featuring some of our favorite Super Tuscans, will be Wednesday, May 9, at 6:30 p.m.
It will feature an outstanding selection of some of the very best, highly rated, “Super Tuscan” Wines available, all imported by top U.S. purveyor of fine wine from Italy, Kobrand.
We will warm up our palates as everyone arrives with a glass of sparkling Caposaldo Prosecco and a variety of Crostinis.
We will enjoy our second course with a fine Chinati Classico Riseva from Nozzole.
Then onto to our third course with our first two Super Tuscans, Crognolo and Poggio Al Lupo from the renown Tenuta Sette Ponti, both consistently rated 90 to 93 points.
Our final course will feature Cabreo Il Borgo (their 2007 rated 94 points by the Wine Spectator) and Guidalberto from the famous Sassicaia estate on the coast near Bolgheri coast that produces Tuscany’s most famous wine.
We will also be getting a special olive oil from Sassicaia to use for our dinner.
Considering these wines normally sell on our list in the $100 range, the dinner will be a bargain at $69 per person, plus tax and gratuity. Featured speaker will be Sarah Klein, Kobrand’s National Italian Specialist.
