Tuscan Wine and Burgers
of Buccia Nera
Some Tuscan wines are profound and meant for long-aging and serious meals. Some are like a Tuscan summer day, simple, bright, delicious and quaff-able.
We love the wines of Buccia Nera and have been buying them for years. They are friendly and delicious and surprisingly complex. They are also inexpensive and great values. These should be your Italian house wines this summer.
Our Maitre d' and wine steward, Beverly, was in Tuscany just recently and made a special trip to the estate for a visit with Ms. Mancini. We just found out that she will be in town only briefly, so on Monday May 15, we're hosting new kind of wine tasting for us.
Not just a tasting. Not quite a wine pairing dinner.
At 6:15 we will gather in the cellar with Anastasia to enjoy a tasting of her wines with antipasti, cheese and some good conversation. At 7 PM, we'll move to the dining room and sit down where you can choose either a Stage Left Burger for dinner or a Crabcake. We'll grab whichever wine you want to drink with dinner and maybe even try one or two side by side. We'll have Zabaglione for dessert and with that we will finish with Vin Santo (and Biscotti of course).
This is going to be casual and laid back and fun, and you will find your house wines for the summer.
