The Unusual Suspects

Dear Feastlings,

When someone says there’ll be Italian wine, we all have our usual suspects: it’ll be a Chianti, or a Barolo, so Sangiovese or Nebbiolo.  Or it’ll be Pinot Grigio or Gavi or Soave.  This Saturday, though, we’ll be offering up the UNusual supsects: the varietals that don’t often see the light of day, at least on American restaurant wine lists.  Our pal Jennifer will be here with four wines that you likely haven’t tasted all that often: a Pigato, a Nerello Mascalese, a blend that, yes, includes Sangiovese, but also includes some Alicante and Marselan.  And we’ll round it all out with a Sagrantino.  What’s more, we’ll be pairing food with the wines and pouring heavy, as it’s the last Saturday of the month.  Want to come taste?  Call us at (520) 326-9363, demand a seat, and show up on Saturday the 27th at 2:00 pm with $40 plus tax and tip and an appetite for food, wine and fun.
