Wine Dinner with Paolo de Marchi
May 22, 2013
It is all but impossible to overstate the impact Paolo de Marchi has had on Tuscan wine. Since taking over his family’s Isole e Olena property in 1976, at the tender age of 20, he has become not only one of Italy’s most influential winemakers—routinely discussed as one of the best small producers in the world—but also one of Tuscany’s staunchest and most erudite advocates. He produces a range of wine: most notably a benchmark Chianti Classico and the 100% Sangiovese Cepparello, one of Italy’s first (and still most important) "Super-Tuscans." He also produces international varieties like Chardonnay, Syrah and Cabernet under the Collezione de Marchi label, all of which are as highly regarded as his Sangiovese.
We are very excited to welcome Paolo to the Osteria for what is sure to be a very special evening. Along with a five-course menu prepared by Chef Matt Molina, we will taste through Paolo’s Chardonnay, two vintages of Chianti Classico, his rare and spectacular Vin Santo, and six (!) vintages of the flagship Cepparello stretching back to 1990. This is going to be one for the books, folks…we hope to see you there!
