If you are a collector of fine, rare wines or a student of wine, whose mission it is to learn from the experts about the richness and quality of special wines, you are in for a treat, like no other, by attending this unique wine and dining event at Tony’s, hosted by Tony Vallone with co-presenter, Jeremy Parzen, a wine writer and Italian food and wine historian. It’s all happening at Tony’s on Thursday evening, July 19th.
The presentation by these gentlemen promises to be both interesting and highly informative. However, the “stars” of the evening are a selection of Italian Wines from deep within Tony’s own wine cellar to be shared for this evening alone. These wines are from three iconic masters from the key wine producing regions of Italy….Piedmont, Veneto and Tuscany.
From Piedmont: Wine of Bartolo Mascarello…
Bartolo Mascarello has been called the “last Mohican” of traditional Barolo. Many years ago, Tony Vallone recognized the superb quality of these classic, opulent wines and began collecting them for his cellar and will be sharing these now mature treasures with his guests on July 19th.

From Veneto: Wine of Giuseppe Quintarelli…..
For the Icons of Italian Wine dinner on July 19th, Tony will be opening one of the great treasures of his cellar: the 1990 Recioto della Valpolicella Riserva by Giuseppe Quintarelli. “They called Quintarelli the King of the Veneto” quotes Tony.

From Tuscany: Wine of Giacomo Tachis…
Giacomo Tachis, known as the “Father of Italian Wine Making” is credited with reviving his country’s wines. They will be presenting this evening, his Tignanello, which Tony refers to as the “true original Super Tuscan.” Tignanello, made from one of the greatest vineyards in Chianti Classico, was the first wine to blend Tuscany’s indigenous Sangiovese grapes (the quintessential Italian grape) with Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc.
