On the Menu: The Cult Super Tuscans of Le Macchiole
October 01, 2009
Want to get in on an exclusive tasting of cult Italian wines, eat some great food from the boot, and help JBF? Our friends at Italian Wine Merchants are hosting an event with Le Macchiole's Cinzia Merli on Monday, October 5. A luminary winemaker, Merli is the woman behind Messorio, a bottle that pushes Italian Merlot to another level. She will be pouring the incomparable 2006 vintage, and will also bring Le Macchiole's Scrio (a limited production Syrah) and numerous vintages of Paleo Rosso (said to give first-growth Bordeaux a run for its money). Regional Italian cheeses, cured meats, a primo, a secondo, and dessert will all be paired with the outstanding wines. Tickets are a steal at $175, and $75 of each purchase will go toward supporting the James Beard Foundation. To purchase tickets and read more about the wines, Signora Merli, and the event, click here.
