Morellino Mon Amor – A Week Together

I have to tread a fine line as I work as a blogger, a journalist but also as a publicist and when writing about wines, I need to declare that some are my clients. So, here’s the skinny: I just did a whirlwind week in the United States with 11 producers from Morellino di Scansano. A lot of other people have written about Morellino this week, including Tom Hyland, the Chicago seminar leader and I hope many more will continue to do so. Robin Kelley O’Connor of Christie’s was gracious enough to host the seminar in New York as part of the Vinitaly in New York Tour on October 19th.

I had a great time discovering new producers of this friendly, versatile and fruity Sangiovese-based wine (at least 85%) with friends and colleagues, among them, my Miami guru… Charlie Arturaola, truly a wine luminary.

My high school boyfriend went to school in Florida and my nice Jewish grandmother lived there for 25 years but Florida has never really been on my radar as a place to live. I must say it does have much to recommend it. I might need to rethink a number of things.

    1. Gianpaolo-
      Thanks for stopping by at Avvinare. I wish your wines had been part of the group. Hopefully next time Poggio Argentiera will be part of the mix. A presto, Susannah

    Thanks for the shout out. I enjoyed working with you on this project and was thrilled to lead the seminar in Chicago. I really had a great time getting to know these lovely people and learning about their wines.

    Thanks for all your help.
