Tonight I'm hosting an Italian wine hour (will probably go much longer). many people attending do not know much about wine. Suggestions for service or information?!?
I would like to serve 3 wines to keep it simple and to be able to provide a wealth of information about each.
I'm obviously going to have Pinot Grigio.
Then I'm thinking two reds. I really want to do Amarone, but this wine is certainly not for everyone.
Chianti would be easy, but [yawn] not that exciting.
Brunello is good but expensive to use on people who will not fully appreciate it.
This is a crew of Californian's so maybe a value Super Tuscan.
Anyone chime in, I need to prepare for this shindig.
