A Tasty Italian Marathon

On February 19th, I had the opportunity to attend a fascinating tasting at New York's iconic Marriott Marquis Hotel. "The Taste of Italy," as it was officially known, was co-hosted by the Italian Trade Commission and the Italian Wine and Food Institute, and featured 26 delicious wines from all over the Italian boot. Bottlings ran the gamut from Astoria's bright, balanced, peach-and-perfume scented Prosecco di Valdobbiadene to Cantine Leonardo da Vinci's violet, leather, and tea-tasting Brunello di Montalcino 2003...

More extensive tasting notes will follow, but for the time being, check out this video of what my spot at the tasting table looked like after the three-hour tour of Italy had ended:
