Zachy's "Super" Tuscan Saturday (Sat. 22 Sep, 2018 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm)

“Super” Tuscan Saturday
Saturday, September 22nd from 1:00pm - 4:00pm
Scarsdale - Zachys Wine and Liquor, 16 East Parkway, Scarsdale

Zachys Presents Our Fall Edition of “Super” Tuscan Saturday – Spotlighting The Magnificent 2015 Vintage!!

A little over two years ago, we jumped on our soapbox at Zachys to proclaim that the 2015 vintage was going to be an exceptionally great year from Tuscany. Even though we were tasting barrel samples at the time, the texture and flesh to these wines indicated that there was going to be uniformly high quality to this vintage. Now that the wines are in bottle, for many we give that quality assessment a resounding “GREAT” from the best producers.

Of course, the champions of the region produce collectible wines even in challenging years. As we all know, the flagship wines from the best producers of Tuscany carry price tags that force many to pull the corks only for special occasions. But… and this is a BIG but… in a vintage like 2015, there are many “best ever” wines produced from Tuscany at more reasonable price points.

This past winter, Italian wine critic Antonio Galloni pointed that out succinctly when he said, “…The 2015 vintage presents consumers with a tremendous opportunity to acquire fine, cellar worthy wines without spending a fortune. In 2015, the warm growing season yielded rich, sumptuous Chianti Classicos with great depth and intensity. Vintages like 2015 tend to raise the quality of entry-level wines. That is exactly what has happened with the 2015 Chianti Classicos. The finest examples can be had for $25-30 a bottle and will drink well for twenty years or more. Smart consumers will to snap up the best of these wines by the case…” (Vinous 1/18)

We have been pulling corks on these wines as they have arrived, and we are in LOVE LOVE LOVE with this vintage - so much so that we have decided to bring out 20+ selections with critics’ reviews ranging from 92 to 99 points and all selling for under $100 (with more than half under $50)!!

Trust me when I say that the last time I had this type of excitement over a vintage from Tuscany was first with the 1997 vintage… then 2010… and NOW 2015.

Registration is complimentary for this event… BUT REQUIRED. We are asking clients to click HERE to be part of this special event on Saturday, September 22nd.
