Celebration of Rocca!
Another week to celebrate October's National Pasta Month at our wine tasting and pairing tonight. Arny will be making his meat filled pasta sauce with Carfagna's Organic Sauce - their Original Recipe Pasta Sauce made with 100% organic ingredients for the health conscious, clean eaters and the curious.
We'll be tasting all wines from Rocca delle Macìe in Italy - Arny's favorites. We'll have Vernaccia, Sasyr and Head to Head Rose. Rocca delle Macìe was established in 1973, when Italo Zingarelli – producer of Ettore Scola’s “We All Loved Each Other So Much”, and also of the wildly popular series of films featuring comedy duo Bud Spencer and Terence Hill (including “They Call Me Trinity” and “Trinity Is Still My Name”) – decided to realize his lifelong dream by acquiring the “Le Macìe” estate – extending across 93 hectares (230 acres) in all, of which only two were under vine – in order to create a winery in the heart of the Chianti Classico zone. Love and passion for the Tuscan land were handed on from Italo to his sons Sergio and Fabio and to his daughter Sandra. In 1985, Sergio, Italo’s youngest son, became personally responsible for the worldwide distribution network and in 1989, with his wife Daniela at his side, was appointed Company President. The company estate now extends to more than 500 hectares (1250 acres) with, in total, more than 200 (500 acres) used as vineyards and 22 (54 acres) as olive groves, subdivided across the company’s six estates.
We look forward to seeing you Friday night from 5-8 p.m.
