On September 14th, Montcalm Wine Importers hosted their second portfolio tasting in the prestigious event space at 7 World Trade Center, overlooking the 9/11 Memorial. With a rich portfolio of fine Italian wines and spirits, many producers were in attendance to present their products and new releases to members of the trade and press. A select number of customers were treated to a special seminar hosted by Il Marroneto owner Alessandro Mori featuring his 100-point rated Brunello di Montalcino.
