News Release: May 18th, 2018

About: Italian Wine Tasting @MetroWines
Please join us for a tasting of Italian Wines from Kobrand Wine and Spirits on Monday, June 18th from 5 to 6:30pm @MetroWines.
Ryann Harris, Fine Wine Manager for Empire Distributors, and Mauro Maugliani, the Italian Specialist for Kobrand, will host the event.  Wines will be offered at a special "event price" this evening.
Four wines will be "on the taste" and "on the house" at the event:

Feudo Maccari Grillo IGP: Straw yellow and gold with intense floral aromas with notes of citrus, peach, almonds and sweet grass. 

Masi, Rosa dei Masi (Refosco Rosé): Salmon pink with cherry colored reflectios. Intense aromas of just rippened berry fruit on the nose, especially raspberries and wild cherries. Soft and well balanced. 

Tenuta Sette Ponti Crognolo (Super Tuscan): 80% Sangiovese. Intense ruby red in color with a fruity, spicy bouquet and ripe cherries and berries on the palate.


Michele Chiarlo Tortoniano Barolo: The wine shows layered aromas and flavors of mint, red fruit and spices. The palate shows silky tannins and bright acidity before a long finish. 

About Kobrand Wines: Kobrand imports and markets a distinguished portfolio of hand selected brands representing virtually every major wine region of the world and its most iconic specialty spirits. Family owned since its founding in 1944, Kobrand attributes its success to a single guiding principle that describes the people, products and relationships behind it: quality.

The portfolio is a collection of gems of New World and Old, including American wineries such as Cakebread Cellars, Sequoia Grove and St. Francis as well as the wines of European masters such as Champagne Taittinger and Maison Louis Jadot and the Portos of Taylor Fladgate, Fonseca and Croft. The legendary Sassicaia from Italy’s Tenuta San Guido and the wines of Craggy Range in New Zealand are relatively new additions that will stand the test of time. The spirits portfolio includes the original Alizé liqueurs as well as fine Cognacs, Armagnacs and other premium spirits.

A portfolio like this grows out of the decades-long experience of passionate professionals who seek out the star viticulturists, winemakers and distillers who are its key contributors. This is Kobrand today: a story of continuing tradition, a story of strong commitment, a story of innovative excellence... a Story of Quality.
