Brunello dinner at Osteria Mozza with San Polino!





BRUNELLO DINNER
Katia Nussbaum
of
Osteria Mozza’s Primo Ministro Room
Wednesday, April 24th 2013
7:00 pm
$145 per person, exclusive of tax and gratuity

In 1990, Luigi Fabbro and Katia Nussbaum bought the stunningly beautiful, overgrown property of San Polino, a 500 year-old farmhouse just outside of Montalcino. They immediately set about reinvigorating the land, replanting and refurbishing the vineyards and, beginning in 2001, producing delicious Brunello.
They are conscientious stewards of their terrain, maintaining the pristine beauty of the property by practicing strict biodynamic viticulture on their south-facing slopes. Winemaking is similarly holistic, which is to say that San Polino’s wines reveal more about soil than winemaking. These wines are soulful, layered expressions of Sangiovese grown in the Montalcino zone, and we have been fans of long-standing.

We are very excited to welcome Katia to the Osteria for a special winemaker dinner. Along with a 5-course Tuscan feast prepared by Chef Matt Molina, we’ll be sampling eight different San Polino wines, including their inaugural 2001 Brunello Riserva. For the Sangiovese lover or the neophyte, this is sure to be a night of great wines, delicious food and stimulating conversation. 
Please join us!!!
