What's not to love about Italian wines?
Ambrosia's next Wine Tasting and Class on Tuesday, November 10 from 5:30pm-7:00pm will feature our favorite kind of wine: Italian (of course)!
Erin Donahue from St. Michele Estates will pour seven wines from her portfolio that are all from the Estates of the Antinori Family, one of Italy's oldest wine producing families. Erin will explain how by balancing modernity with tradition, the Antinori wine estates showcase the best that Italy has to offer.
The Antinori family has been involved in the production of wine for over six centuries, ever since, in 1385, Giovanni di Piero Antinori entered as a member, the “Arte Fiorentina”, the Winemakers’ Guild of the city of Florence. During this entire long period, thorough twenty six generations, the family has always directly managed this work with courageous and, at times, innovative decisions, but always maintaining, unaltered, a fundamental respect for tradition and for the territory in which they have operated.
Wines to be poured are:
- Castello Della Sala "Bramito" Chardonnay, Umbria IGT 2013
- Santa Cristina "Le Maestrelle", Toscana IGT 2013
- Tormaresca "Torcicoda" Primitivo, Salento IGT 2012
- Guado al Tasso "Il Bruciato", Bolgheri DOC 2013
- Prunotto Barolo DOCG 2008
- Villa Antinori Chianti Classico Reserva, Toscana DOCG 2011
- Prunotto “Mompertone”, Monferrato Rosso DOC 2010
