WAV | The Best of Tuscany Wine Dinner with Paolo Pellizari

Taste of Tuscany with Bacco Selections and VinoVino

There’s just something otherworldly about Tuscany, that quintessential central Italian region where the harmony of vineyards, landscape and architecture blend into a seamless whole. This is the home of Sangiovese, that most food-friendly of grapes, in all its forms: as Brunello di Montalcino it’s aristocratic, powerful and long-lived; as Chianti it’s graceful and generous; and often it’s a part of “Super Tuscan” blends, whose styles are diverse and far-ranging.

Our special guest speaker and presenter for the evening will be Paolo Pellizzari, founder and co-owner of Bacco Selections. Founded in 2013, Bacco Selections is a labor of love, with Paolo and his wife Sheila sharing their love for great Italian wines from their time living in the heart of Chianti and having close relationships with the vineyards and winemakers there. Paolo will guide us through 8 wines from Tuscany with stories and insights only an Italian native could command.
