First, SOHO will pour a Le Volte Dell’ Ornellaia 2017 from Bolgheri.  The winemaker offers,

“Son of a particularly hot, dry year, Le Volte dell’ Ornellaia 2017 is characterised by its usual deep ruby red colour. A pleasant bouquet of ripe red fruits and spices is sustained on the palate by crisp acidity and an open, enveloping tannic structure.”

Next, SOHO will pour a Giuseppe Brancatelli, Toscana Valle delle Stelle 2016 from Tuscany. The wine is described by the winemaker,

“In glass, the wine is deeply hued and resounds with aromas of cherry, floral notes and spices. Dark red fruits enrobed in a soft texture makes this an exceptionally pleasing wine to drink Pleasant, harmonious and elegant with a long finish.”

Finally, SOHO will pour a Antinori Tenuta Guado al Tasso Il Bruciato 2017 from Bolgheri. Notes on the wine,

“The 2017 Il Bruciato shows an intense ruby red color. The nose presents the notes of red and black berry fruit which are characteristic of this vintage and capable of giving the wine an excellent concentration. Sweet spices and a hint of liquorice complete the bouquet. The palate is well structured, persistent, and highly pleasurable in its fruity finish and after taste.”

SOHO’s Executive Chef Joey Zelinka has created a suggested tapa plate to pair with each of the wines!
