White Wine Reception with passed hors d’oeuvres followed by an eight course dinner with wine pairing
Del Posto is honored to welcome world renowned wine visionary Marchese Piero Antinori and his longtime winemaker Renzo Cotarella.
The evening will celebrate the alliance between two of the world’s most acclaimed wine minds and the iconoclastic: Tignanello.
Tignanello defied the traditions of the time and was the first Sangiovese based wine blended with non-traditional grapes, to be aged in barriques, and eschewed using white grapes in its blend.
Perhaps no family has had a larger impact on its region of origin than Antinori. Tignanello led Tuscany’s wine renaissance and catapulted it into the pantheon of great wine regions. From humble beginnings dating back more than 600 years, the family business has transformed itself through one of Italy’s most recognizable wines. Marchese Piero Antinori and Renzo Cotarella will preside over the guided tasting of all 39 vintages of Tignanello produced to date.The once in a lifetime tasting will be unprecedented even for the great minds behind the wine.
It will be the first time the two lifelong friends have tasted every vintage themselves in such a setting. Executive Chef Melissa Rodriguez has developed a menu of Tuscan inspired dishes that will complement the wines.
We look forward to seeing you on Tuesday, October 15th.
