    Wining Hour Feature: CeniPrimo Chianti Classico Gran Selezione

    Ok, so while I may not ever need a reason to drink good wine, CeniPrimo was a great choice for the month of August for numerous reasons! For one, August represents the last full month of Summer, so it is definitely a time for basking in the sun and enjoying life. August is a festive month for many Italiani, as Ferragosto is observed. Lastly, August is the month in which I gain another year of wisdom! CeniPremo, the awesome Italian red wine from the Ricasoli family at Castello Brolio in Tuscany, was just the thing. Since 1141, the Ricasoli estate and Castello Brolio located in Gaiole in Chianti, has been…

    Wining Hour Feature: Saracosa Vermentino di Toscana

    This month, I’ve decided to feature a refreshing Italian white wine. This selection is Saracosa, which is a Vermentino di Toscana. Saracosa is from the Barbanera family, specifically Sofia Barbanera, in Tuscany. Saracosa may sound familiar, because it shares the name with its sister wine, the popular Saracosa Governo Red wine. Nevertheless, its a perfect time to learn about this mouthwatering white wine. Our company is located at the foot of Mount Cetona (Siena), in a territory – the Tuscan one – as beautiful as it is generous, famous throughout the world for its great grapes. Still today we work inspired by our past, strengthened by the history we carry…
