Talking With Robert Kennedy About The TENUTA CASALI ROMAGNA, ITALIAN WINES of Owner Silvia Casali That Will Be Here Saturday, October 25th, 2014 from 2 To PM To Do An In/Store Wine Tasting Of 3 Sangiovese Reds And One Dessert Red, As Well ... Join Us, Never Any Charge Here @ Cleveland Park Wine Spirits

Robert Kennedy is here and he was here this past Tuesday, August 12th, 2014 tasting Silvia Casali's TENUTA CASALI 2012 ' Palazzina ' Sangiovese Superiore stainless/steel Romagna, Italian red and since I was away on vacation I will have him tell you about it now. It has 13.5 percent alcohol by volume and I loved tasting it with the other two as well. Silvia will be here on Saturday, October 25th, 2014 from 2 to 6 PM tasting these three along with a half bottle of Terrano / Cagnina GRAPE / A DESSERT WINE from Romagna for you all to taste as well / price to follow / ...SO : here's Robert Kennedy to ' wax poetic ' with you :  " the Sangiovese based wines the Casali's are producing are fantastic and pack a big bang for the buck. All three are unfiltered thus there is some nice and crunchy fruit in there. he entry level Palazzina is cut with  Merlot to soften those tannins just a bit and goes great with pizza and hamburgers while Baruccia , aged 5 months in French barrels then 3 months in stainless steel prior to bottling, is becoming one of the big names from Romagna, pair this with grilled sausages and grilled meats. Quartosole is Casali's Reserve and it is aged 18 months in a mix of new and used French oak. An austere wine with dark berry fruits, spice and what I a call BACON FAT!!!!! An amazing wine, only 120 bottles imported and we will have a few available for purchase during the tasting / it will be on special for $32.99 a bottle. Pair with wild boar, pheasant or a nice juicy fillet.  Was just speaking with Silvia while writing this text and she is super excited about coming to DC for the first time. We are Casali's sole US importer at present. Questa sara' un ottima possibilita' per tutti voi, Italiani e non, di esercitare vs iItaliano durante la degustazione con me e Silvia!! A presto !!!   Grazie Robert e Silvia e a presto!   Anthony / TONY / Quinn  8 / 21 /2014   Cleveland Park Wine And Spirits 3423 Connecticut Avenue N.W.
