Luca Maroni in Town At Altacucina

Italian wine expert Luca Maroni is in town for a tasting today at Altacucina at 3pm.

I’m running over there to taste some of the new fruit driven wines that he will be showcasing. I look forward to trying a great pecorino from Farnese winery in Abruzzo as well as a DOCG Colline Teramane from the same region. I get a jump on everyone else because I know what they are serving.

Every year I miss Luca’s big tasting in Rome, Sensofwine. This year it is being held on November 21-22. Once again, it doesn’t look like it’s in the cards for me, although I do love Rome in the Fall, in the Spring, etc….Luckily, I will be attending the New York version on February 3. Last year was grand. I tried lots of wines that I had never heard of and generally had a great time.

For more information on Luca, check out an article he wrote about wines on Altacucina. His take is interesting and while you are at it, you can also look at Radicchioblog, Altacucina’s blog about food, wine and local events…

Sometimes, my PR side comes through…it’s inevitable.
