Slow Wine’s February 2020 New York tasting was quite beautiful.
I attended an education session on Cerasuolo d’Abruzzo, which produces rosé made from Montepulciano and is Italy’s first DOC dedicated to rosé in Italy (more about that later).
Here are my favorite wines from the event that was hosted at Eataly downtown.
Again, sauvignon blanc shined because of its grassy elements which I’m missing given the preponderance of overripe American sauvignon blanc.
