Mediterra, is the hot spot this week in Palmer Square as they host Alberto Antonini for a wine tasting with Tapas in their newly renovated Taverna.
Tuscan-born winemaker Alberto Antonini is among the most influential consultants from Italy. His credits include Castello di Bossi‘s modern Chianti Classicos and all-Merlot Girolamo, as well as the new Poggio al Tesoro wines from the Bolgheri joint venture between the Allegrini family and U.S. importer Leonardo LoCascio. But his reach extends far beyond his native country. He is also partner and winemaker for Altos Las Hormigas, which makes some of Argentina’s top Malbecs. Antonini studied at the University of Florence in the early- and mid-’80s, as well as the Université de Bordeaux and later at the University of California, Davis. With an international education, it shouldn’t come as any surprise that today Antonini’s consulting company works with clients from Armenia to South Africa. Among his several South American clients are Concha y Toro in Chile and Bodegas Nieto Senetiner, Bodegas Renacer and Bodega Melipal in Argentina. Despite his globetrotting lifestyle (and the workload that goes with it), however, Antonini is the last to sing his own praises. He’s soft-spoken and prefers to keep a low profile.
