CCR Wine Tasting: The Excellence of Pinot Noir - November 11, 2017

As a follow-up to the last CCR wine tasting, we continue our Pinot Nero adventure. We will taste quality wines ranging from the traditional Pinot Noir vineyards in the north to a surprising tasting from the south.

Grown primarily in the cool higher-altitude vineyards of the North, it is the terroir that makes Pinot Nero ‘Italian.’ Pinot Nero is a notoriously difficult grape to grow. Despite this, wines from the Pinot Nero grape are among the most awarded and respected.

Where: Residence of CCR member in the Balduina/Roma Cavalieri (former Hilton) area - exact address will be sent to registered participants.
When: Saturday, November 11, 2017
Time: 7 p.m.
Cost:  €25 for members (€35 for non-members)
RSVP to Linda and Paul by Wednesday November 8, at canadarome@gmail.com. Please note that you are responsible for your reservation.

Each session is given in French and Italian and focuses on a specific theme relative to Italian wines. After the tasting is complete, a light dinner will be served.

Daniele Maestri, well-known Italian sommelier and a favorite among CCR members for his knowledgeable and lively presentations, will again lead this lecture and wine-tasting. For those interested in ‘wining and dining’, Daniele writes in-depth articles on Italian wines and food for “Bibenda – Vini D’Italia” produced by the Italian Sommelier Foundation and he is a major contributor to their wine guide.
