Brunello Wine Tasting: A Tuscan Celebration
at
Rosie’s Wine Bar
Wednesday, October 3d from 7 to 10 p.m.
Cost: $40 per person plus tax and gratuity
Picture yourself at a hilltop villa in Tuscany, overlooking the vineyards.  That's what it's like to be in Montalcino, Italy, where they cultivate the world's best Sangiovese Grosso grape, and turn it into the hedonistic wine commonly referred to as Brunello.  Rosie's Wine Bar will be simulating this feeling by assembling a tasting of more than 10 Brunellos available in the US.  Visitors will sample them with traditional Tuscan cheese and delicacies such as wild boar (cinghiale) charcuterie. All who are interested, please RSVP as soon as possible to: joshua@rosieswinebar.com. Rosie’s Wine Bar, 514 North Ave., Garwood: Call: 908.518.WINE
