Gianni Buonomo Vintners Crowned with Top Honor
San Diego CA – August 16, 2018 – “An Italian celebration is in order! We’re pulling out all the stops!” exclaimed a jubilant Keith Rolle, winemaker at Gianni Buonomo Vintners. “We’re bringing in a top notch Italian chef and releasing our 2014 Sangiovese.”
“There are some very good wineries in San Diego. Being named Best of San Diego is a great honor.”
The food will be superb. Chef Max and his team from Zafferano Catering guarantee an incredible three course Italian experience. All guests will receive an antipasto plate, a pasta plate and an entrée along with a glass of Gianni Buonomo wine. Chef Max, a native of Sicily, trained under two Michelin rated chefs in Parma, Italy.
On display will be the 2014 Gianni Buonomo Sangiovese. This Super Tuscan-style blend of 90% Sangiovese and 10% Petit Verdot was aged for 2 years in French oak barrels and then bottle aged for 2 years. It is the ultimate complement to fine Italian cuisine.
Gianni will also be pouring his Maestrale. It is a Bordeaux-style blend and winner of a Gold Medal and a 94 point rating at the 2018 New York International Wine Competition.
