Monday, September 17th, we will be joined by Valentina Davide, brand ambassador of Noelia Ricci, for a tasting of the Ricci family's wines.
Noelia Ricci is a 9 hectares wine project founded by Marco Cirese (Noelia Ricci's grandson) in 2010. The Noelia Ricci vineyard is located within the estate of Tenuta Pandolfa (the estate is currently owned and managed by Paola Piscopo, Noelia's daughter). Spanning over 140 hectares at the foot of the Tuscan-Emilian Apennines, areas of the estate's lands are ideally located for the production of Sangiovese. Noelia Ricci, the namesake of the brand, was the first to realize the potential for wine on her family's estate. She began planting new vineyards in 1980's, and in doing so, laid the groundwork for the Noelia Ricci project.
Further information on the story of the Noelia Ricci project, and their wines, may be found on their website. We will be pouring the following wines:
2016 Noelia Ricci ‘Bro’ Bianco Forli
2016 Noelia Ricci Il Sangiovese di Romagna
2015 Noelia Ricci “Godenza” Sangiovese di Romagna Superiore
The tasting will take place from 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm on Monday, September 17th. Cost of admission for this event is $15 for the general public, and free for Soif wine club members. Tickets may be purchased below, or at the event.
