Join us for a great lunch at Mamma Maria celebrating three of the best wine estates in Italy. Giorgio Rivetti will host this amazing event .

               First Nicoletta Nafi from Ciacci Piccolomini d’Aragona in Montalcino will guide us to the wines of one of the most historic and high quality Brunello estates.

               Next owner Giovanni Bertani will lead a tasting of wines from the equally historic Tenuta Santa Maria alla Pieve estate in Valpolicella. Here we find among the greatest in Amarone.

               Then Giorgio will step up and show two vintages of his unrivaled La Spinetta Barbaresco. After all is said and done we might even pour the 2009 Passito Oro from La Spinetta for dessert.

               We do not have a final price yet on this but figure about 170/person, tax and gratuity included, should be close. We will send you an update in a week. As usual Mamma Maria will set the menu based on freshness of available ingredients and soon as we have that we will send it on. Mamma Maria is also happy to accommodate any special dietary need or requests.
