I almost don’t even want to write a review for Marchesi so we can keep it a secret. Going to Marchesi for a tasting, a glass, or to share a bottle with a friend feels like a mini-vacation. The tasting room is set next to five acres of grape vines. It’s cozy and perfectly inviting. Their are two kitties wandering about that makes it feel even more like you’re visiting a little Tuscan oasis. The owner, Franco, will cut you salami with an old hand crank meat slicer to enjoy with your wine. In the summer you can relax out on the patio and soak up the sun alongside the vines. The wines are as spectacular as the setting. The Pinot Grigio and Moscato were both refreshing and crisp with lots of citrus flavor and no oak. The Barbera, a red, was beautifully balanced with a hint of vanilla bean. The Uvagio, a blend, had rich flavors of cherry, pomegranate, and cassis. Marchesi is my favorite winery these days.
