September 27th 6-8PM
Come joins us and taste the wines of Produttori di Manduria (CP Vini) from the Puglia Region of Italy, hosted by Paula Barbarito-Levitt, Italian Wine and Food Specialist, Cookbook Author, and Co-owner of Girasole Imports. If you like Zinfandel you will love the wines she is tasting! Three are 100% Primitivo, which is the same grape as Zinfandel. These wines are hearty and fruity like California Zinfandel but they are also fresh and minerally, without the jamminess that some Zinfandels can have. The other two are mostly Negroamaro, a fruity, earthy, spicy, dark berry and cherry flavored wine. The Salice Salentino (85% Negroamaro, 15% Malvasia Nera) is one of our most popular wines!
This is a casual walk-up tasting event. If you would like to sit down and enjoy dinner while you are tasting, reservations are recommended.
