Basadone in the Times

We were thrilled to see that Basadone (one of our favorite wines, pictured right) was Frank Bruni’s pick for Thanksgiving in yesterday’s Dining section.

“This lithe, peppery wine hit the spot,” wrote Eric Asimov. “Distinctive and easy to drink, with unusual flavors of earth, pepper and spice that go well with food.”

The Times tasting panel gave the Basadone 3 out of 4 stars (“Excellent”).

Please note that the price reported by the Times was incorrect: the price is, and has always been, $22.00. Of course, a 10% discount applies for purchases of 12 or more bottles.

In other news…

This afternoon, the staff at Vino is very proud to host winemakers from Collemattoni and Fornace, both producers of some of the best Brunello di Montalcino to emerge from the appellation in recent memory. Today, they will be pouring their entire line of wines, including their Rosso di Montalcino (seven wines total).

Don’t miss this opportunity to meet and chat with the winemakers and to taste their wines with them.

WHEN: TODAY, 5:30-7:30
WHERE: VINO (121 East 27th St. between Park and Lex.)

And for those of you who still need wines for the holiday next week, don’t forget that we’ll be pouring our Holiday Wine selection tomorrow (5:30-7:30) and Saturday (4:30-6:30). Receive a 10% discount if you buy all six (online or in-store).

We hope to see you soon!
