seen for you by Donatella Cinelli Colombini
Women’s important role in the wine world is now evident in all sectors: as excellent producers, knowledgeable sommeliers, responsible consumers, to all of these Luciano Zazzeri has dedicated an haute cuisine menu inspired by Tuscan tradition. These dishes will accompany 40 excellent wines that the producers present will serve the 50 diners during the evening: firstly a fish soup with “Carpaccio di gallinella” a san entree, then “raviolo di mare con crema d’aglio e salvia fritta”, as a main dish “seppia nera con filetti di triglia padellati” and as dessert “tortino di mele con gelato al Vin Santo”.
The “special” wine list includes bottles from small productions and very high
quality. All participants will have the opportunity of tasting 8 wines and to personally meet the two producers and who will be seated at the same table during this exceptional occasion. This is definitely an appointment with the best of wine and food.
Among the wines to be tasted during this important and refined dinner there will be some previews of new mines, such as the I Balzini “Pink Label”, a very perfumed rosé made with Sangiovese and Merlot
from the 2011 harvest and dedicated to all women made by Antonella D’Isanto and her wine maker Barbara Tamburini.
“Women are becoming very important opinion makers for the wine world – commented the President of the Tuscan representative of the Associazione Nazionale Donne del VinoDonatella Cinelli Colombini quoting a recent research regarding the profile of consumers – not only because there are more of them but also because they are careful of the quality of what they drink: they are the ones who orientate the market, choosing wine at the restaurant or in the wine stores and preferring important wines especially great reds. The most influential range is that of the young consumers, who see
in wine a reason for socializing and an opportunity to increase their social relations. Women climbing the social ladder. Statistically in line with men in the occasional glass, well informed and demanding so as to become pioneers of the motto “drink less but better”.
