Mazzoni Wines Applauded by Sommelier Sara Lehman
This January, Mazzoni winemaker Alessandro Bindocci visited the United States to present his wines in a series of tastings, including a luncheon at Ai Fiori in New York City. Joining him at this event was Sara Lehman, author of the blog, Somm in the City.
Praising Alessandro for his “charm, passion, and knowledge of food and wine pairings,” Lehman also lauded the wines themselves, saying:
“The Pinot Grigio’s acidity paired beautifully with the creaminess of the soup…notes of citrus and minerality make this Pinot Grigio one of my top favorites of all time!”
Mazzoni Vermentino Chardonnay quickly became a highlight as well:
“This wine was striking with tropical fruit notes…I will admit, I fell in love with the Vermentino blend and absolutely could picture this as a perfect poolside wine, brunch wine, or daily spring/summer sip.”
