Zachys is continuing its celebration of the Noble B’s – Barolo, Barbaresco, and Brunello di Montalcino - with a special offer on more than 125 wines with up to 25% OFF! The icons of Bartolo Mascarello, Biondi Santi, Roberto Voerzio, Valdicava, Aldo Conterno, Banfi, Giacosa, and Bruno Rocca are just a few of the many highlights for you to explore!
As many of you know, last Tuesday evening at City Winery in Manhattan, Zachys and our good friend James Suckling hosted more than 40 of the great producers of Piedmont and Tuscany. Our consensus is Italy is hotter than ever! Why do we say this? Five hundred enthusiasts and collectors came out to the SOLD OUT event and joined us for what was our most successful event in 70 years.
Having tasted and mingled with the winemakers personally, we have selected some of our favorites from the night, as well as adding some Zachys signatures to share with all our readers and customers. In polling our guests, some of the easy WOTN (wines of the night) included: the Aldo Conterno 2009 Barolo Romirasco – the cult cru is shockingly approachable; the Biondi Santi 1997 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva was the obvious showstopper, but it was also their 2009 Brunello that turned heads - it truly is a rare Brunello that offers approachability and a glimpse into the benchmark of Montalcino; the artisanal gems of Canalicchio di Sopra showed us one of the rising star of the region; and Bruna Giacosa stopped traffic for what will be the last bottling of the historic Barbaresco Santo Stefano – arguably the reference point for Giacosa and all Barbaresco.
The list goes on and it is hard for me to pick favorites with this selection, and that is why I invite you to explore and celebrate these regions as I cannot remember seeing this many happy faces enjoying wine!
A colossal thank you to James Suckling, the producers and most importantly our customers who joined us for this special and MEMORABLE event! If you could not make it, there are more than 125 special wines for you to choose from for your own tasting experiences at home.
All My Best,
