Yes It’s TRE BICCHIERI DAY in NEW YORK 2020
The great Tre Bicchieri Italian Wine Tasting returns to New York today. For the Italian Wine World of New York (Me & ?) this is our biggest day of the year. I will see many of my old friends who make wine in Italy, as well as catching up with pals from New York who deal and love Italian Wine as well. Tre Bicchieri New York is a Grand Tasting of Italian Wines as presented by Gambero Rosso and their Tre Bicchieri Italian Wine Guide named Vini d’ Italia (Wines of Italy) which is considered The Italian Wine Bible of the mother country of these great wines, Italy.
Gambero Rosso literally translates to Red Prawn (Shrimp) and the publishing house by the same name prints books and magazines dedicated to Italian Food & Wine. For Americans, a good analogy of what Gambero Rosso magazine is, that it is more or less like a combination of The Wine Spectator & Gourmet Magazine all put together into one magazine. Gambero Rosso does not publish a magazine solely dedicated to wine, but its contents and subject matter are of Italian Wine and food, and a bit of travel thrown in as well, as it all ties together.
The Gamebero Rosso Italian Wine Guide “Vini d’Italia” is a guide to Italy’s top wines. Gambero Rosso awards Three Glasses (Tre Bicchieri) to what they consider to be the best wines in Italy. They award one and two glasses as well The Tre Bicchieri Wine Tastings Tour brings the top 200 Tre Bicchieri Wines to cities aroudn the World for these grand tastings. The cities include in the Tre Bicchieri Tour are: Piemonte (Alba) , Tuscany New York, London, Chicago, Alto Adige, San Francisco, and Los Angeles.
Yes today I will see some good friends who I’ve not seen for some time. I will taste wonderful Italian Wines, including; Barolo Barbaresco, Brunello, Chianti, Amarone, Aglianico, and more. I love tasting the wines, but for me Tre Bicchieri is seeing my friends, chit-chatting and sipping the wine, but it all about the socializing. This is what I cherish most about the event, being with and seeing my friends. All surrounded by Italy’s Greatest Wine.
