Aperitivo Italiano: Sipping Sangiovese

Let’s get serious about Sangiovese!

Join us on a tasting tour of Tuscany as we explore four wines produced with the Sangiovese grape varietal at our Aperitivo Italiano: Sipping Sangiovese. Riccardo Guerrieri, owner of VinSanto, will be our guest speaker for the wine tasting, which, as always, will be accompanied by Italian-style light bites.

What does aperitivo italiano really mean?

An aperitivo (or apéritif) is often described as being similar to the American happy hour, but in reality, it’s so much more than that. An aperitivo is a ritual, joyous and mood-lifting. It relaxes you after a day of work and prepares you for the night to come. The aperitivo has long been a staple in Italy, and in recent years, has been gaining more appreciation around the world.
