Over the years, Zachys has built an incredible reputation as one of the country’s top Italian wine retailers, especially when it comes to Brunello. We ARE the premier destination for Brunello di Montalcino in the country. But it’s just not Brunello, I am proud to say. Over the past year, with the release of so many outstanding 2013 Tuscans from the 95-point “classic” vintage, we have offered a number of highly-rated Super Tuscans from Chianti to Bolgheri to Maremma. To celebrate all the new arrivals from across Tuscany, join me for an exciting complimentary tasting on Wednesday, April 19th here in Scarsdale: The 2nd Annual Tuscan Extravaganza - The Tuscan Taste-Off.

We’ve planned an incredible evening, in which you get to compare the Brunellos of the 2010 “Vintage of a Lifetime” against the new releases of the 2012 “Rockstar Vintage”. Plus, we are adding the SHINING STAR Super Tuscans from one of our favorite vintages in a long time - the 95-point 2013 vintage! Jancis Robinson has called the 2013 vintage “a ‘classic vintage’....one that resulted in elegant, fresh wines. A promising vintage...”, and we could not agree more!

Which Brunello vintage will you like best? Will it be the 2012 Brunellos? These are wines that are all about finesse and elegance, offering beautiful aromas, vibrant fruit, lively acidity, silky tannins, and yet still retain a sense of terroir and varietal that even the ardent Burgundy enthusiast will not be able to resist. OR, will it be the 2010 Brunellos with their power, intensity, energy and savory qualities that has made it the greatest modern vintage of Italy’s most famous region? How does the 2013 “Classic” Super Tuscan vintage hold up against their California and French counterparts? You will have to attend to find out...so mark your calendars: April 19th 5:45 to 8:30 at Zachys in Scarsdale for the Tuscan Taste-Off: 2010 Brunello vs. 2012 Brunello vs. 2013 Super Tuscans!!!!

Featured Producers: Banfi, Castelgiocondo, Canallichio di Sopra, Castello della Sala, Ciacci Piccolomini, Il Poggione, Pietranera, Fattoria dei Barbi, Guado Al Tasso, Petrolo, Renieri, Sette Ponti, Valdicava and more!

Tasting 20+ Brunello and Super Tuscan wines is already impressive; however, I figured why not top that and add 16 more?! The Zachys Enomatic, added to an already stellar lineup of producers, will feature sixteen NEW Italian finds, presented by the Zachys Team that travelled to Italy. Whether you are a novice or seasoned collector, this is a rare chance to taste this many Brunellos and Super Tuscans in the only place possible, outside of Montalcino – Zachys, The Premier Italian Destination in the US! Space will be limited, and with an event of this caliber, we highly recommend registering by April 14th as we anticipate this event to be sold out quickly.

I hope to see you there!

All my best,
Andrew
