Ascoli Piceno is the name of a largely undiscovered province within the barely discovered region of Marche in Italy. The province, which the New York Times has branded “The New Tuscany,” turns out three notable wines. Two of them—Falerio and Offida—are named for towns of the province and are fashioned predominantly of Trebbiano Toscano and Passerina grapes respectively. The third wine, called simply Rosso Piceno, “red,” is a blend of Montepulciano and Sangiovese.
But tasting, of course, is believing. And on April 17, you will have a chance to do just that when the Picenos Wine Consortium sponsors a guided tasting of the region’s wines, which are currently unavailable in the United States. Dishes meant to complement the wines will be prepared by chef Emilio Pascuallini. James Beard nominated cookbook author Francine Segan will be your host (and translator).
The event will take place at the 92nd Street Y and will run from 7 to 8:30 p.m. The cost is $40 a person. 92nd Street Y, 1395 Lexington Avenue.
