Thank you to everyone who came out to taste with me yesterday at I Trulli in Manhattan!
It was wonderful to see so many friends, old and new, and to pour an extraordinary flight of Franciacorta (16 different labels in total; see the list of wines below).
And thank you to owner Nicola Marzovilla and the staff at I Trulli: What an awesome feeling to arrive at the restaurant to find the wines already chilled and ready to go! The seamless and super pro service really made my job a breeze.
