Botticelli and Corzano Bianco
In January, Christie's will auction "Young Man Holding a Roundel"
by Sandro Botticelli (1445-1510). Expected Hammer Price: $80million!
The Florentine Master of Early Renaissance is best known
for his elegant mythological scenes like "The Birth of Venus" and "Spring"
both in the Uffizi Gallery in Florence.
Gorgeous. You could spend the time until January planning a profit generating crime or you could buy the poster of this Botticelli and a bottle of Tuscan Wine!
When you think Tuscan, you probably think Red.
But we have great Tuscan Whites @MetroWines like this one:
Chardonnay 55%, Petit Manseng 20%, Semillon 10%
Sauvignon Blanc 10%, Trebbiano and Malvasia 5%.
Strong nose, with light notes of white flowers and lemon curd.
It is intensely fruity, yet fresh and minerally.
2018 is sold out online at Central Wine Merchants.
Just as well. It was $17.99!
and $17.99 at Vivino too.
** But $14.99 @MetroWines! **
