For the first time in our short history, Domenico Selections will hold a trade tasting on September 26. We are working with a PR firm and a corporate event planner to select the right venue.
We will be graced, no matter what the final address of the event, by the presence of several of our producers.
Radiant and articulate as ever will be Chiara Martinotti of Cascina Gilli, whose frizzante Malvasia is doing very well despite Strappo's personal misgivings about its sellability. (Even Strappo can be dead-wrong, which leads one to doubt many of life's verities.)
The charming and knowledgeable Francesca Ciani of Friuli will repesent her family's winery Aquila del Torre. DS will initially import her AT line -- a no-oak, fresh and mineral collection of Friulian whites.
And, for one day only in New York, that up-and-coming wine star, Luca Fedrigo of L'Arco, he of the Quintarelli "pedigree." If you're familiar with these big, rich wines, I suggest you pre-order now.
