Learn More About Your Favorite Wine During This Guided Tasting Next Friday

The Italian Cultural and Community Center will host a wine tasting on Friday, August 9th at 7:00 p.m. as part of its wine tasting series Come Wine with Us. This guided wine tasting will highlight 5 Sangiovese based wines paired with bites from Amalfi Ristorante Italiano & Bar. Check it out next week!

Sangiovese, a dark-berried vine, is the most widely planted grape variety in Italy. Virtually synonymous with the red wines of Tuscany, and all the romanticism that goes with the territory, Sangiovese is the core constituent in some of the great names in Italian wine.

Guests will have the opportunity to enjoy a one-of-a-kind tasting experience through the exploration of the cultural, environmental, historical and social context of these regional wines, paired with bites carefully selected to create a distinct and unique flavor. The tasting will be led by Philip Cusimano.

Philip Cusimano has been in the wine industry for forty years and is versed in all aspects of the wine to market process. For the past 25 years, Philip has worked exclusively with Italian wine and has interacted with a “Who’s Who” list of Italian wine producers. Cusimano’s message is succinct: “Wine is simple to understand and even easier to enjoy.”

Leave your passport at the door – Chef and Owner Giancarlo Ferrara invite you to experience the tastes, aromas, and passions of his homeland, Salerno in the Amalfi Coast, right here in Houston through a culinary experience created over the years.
