Taste Tuscany's Treasures – Brunellos + Super Tuscans - BYOB or Just Taste

From the storied ancient traditions of Tuscany, comes the world's pinnacle of Sangiovese - Brunello di Montalcino. Add to that, a new striding colssus has emerged from under the Tuscan sun, the Super-Tuscan. Usually it's Sangiovese blended with either/or (Cabernet, Merlot or Syrah) to give a new yet sublime take on Tuscan wine.

Come taste the treasures of Tuscany. BYOB or Just show up to taste.

$5 if you bring a bottle, $10 to just taste. We will put the fees in a pot and the winner (whoever brings the best rated bottle will take home the pot (Minus food expense). Blind Tasting.

Meat and Cheese plates provided.

Great Value event, the last 8 times, everyone got their fill, and the winner took home money for bringing the best wine.

Once again, whoever brings the best wine (Blind rated), will take home the pot. If we get 10 people to show, the after expense pot should be at least $50, Last week the winner took home $95.

We will taste blind and rate using the Robert Parker 100 point system.

Think you know Tuscany? Bring a bottle and let's find out. If you bring the best bottle, you will go home with the winnings. Last time the winner took home $95, week before the pot was $80.

Starts at 7PM, but feel free to show up early, I always have a bottle or 2 open.

    A few good wines. I prefer sweeter wines though, in general.

    Confused. Does it have to be either a Brunello or a Super Tuscan?

      As long as you bring something Italian I don't think the Carabinieri will come after you. No one will complain if you sneak in a Dolcetto. Unless you win - then it's time to lawyer up. :)
