What’s that you say? You didn’t know Jenny & François Selections works with Italian wines? Well, it’s true, we do work with two brilliant Italian winemakers (so far!), and one of them is making a visit to New York this weekend! Alessandro (Sandro) Barosi, the brilliant and charming organic winemaker at Cascina Corte in Piedmont is coming to town mainly to participate in the Gambero Rosso tasting, and will be featuring his Dolcetto Dogliani Pirochetta, winner of the very prestigious Tre Bicchieri award, as well as his excellent Dolcetto Dogliani and Barbera. You can meet Sandro and taste his wines at the Gambero Rosso tasting on Friday, at one of the following free wine store tastings on Thursday, Saturday or Sunday, or if you’re in the trade, you can contact your sales rep and arrange a meeting with him.
