Dear Feastlings,

There’s indisputably a certain amount of glory attributed to the wines of Northern Italy- Piedmont has its Barolos and Barbarescos; Valpolicella has its Amarone; even central Italy has its Brunello di Montalcino and its Vino Nobile di Montepulciano.  But the south is often robbed of its wine cachet, partly because of its sun-drenched vineyards, partly because of its peasant vibe, and partly because it doesn’t have the centuries-long marketing campaign that Tuscany and Piedmont have under their belts.  This week, though, our friend Emilie rejoins us to talk- and taste- wines from the southern part of the Italian boot.  yes, they’re ripe and rich, but there’s an Old World balance that you don’t get in corresponding New World wines from, say, Lodi, or Paso Robles.  Some of you met Christian Tombacco when he was here for a dinner with us in January, and we’ll be pouring more of the wines he imports (and makes) this Saturday, March 2nd, at 2:00 pm.  It’s  $18 plus tax and tip, and promises to be both fun and delicious.  If you’d like to join us, you can reserve a seat at the tasting by calling us at (520) 326-9363.
