Wandering Wine Maker with Tenuta Caparzo
With vineyards strategically located just southeast of the charming (and famous) hilltop town of Montalcino, Tenuta Caparzo has what it takes to make outstanding Tuscan wines. Founded in the late 1960's, Caparzo is just the name that comes to mind for a great Brunello, year in and year out. They also produce Rosso di Montalcino, a Chardonnay-based white wine, grapa, olive oil and more. Caparzo owns Borgo Scopeto, a well known Chianti estate and Doga delle Clavule in Maremma, specializing in the local staple wine Morellino di Scansano.
The ending of the 2010 movie "Letters to Juliet" (Amanda Seyfried) was filmed at the Borgo Scopeto Relais, showcasing the beautiful scenery of the Tuscan countryside.
On this special evening, Caparzo's Export Manager and Sales Manager for Europe and Italy Mirco Biliorsi will be visiting us. A native of Montalcino, Marco has a Political Science degree from the University of Siena and is an A.I.S. sommelier (Italian Sommelier Association).
Mirco will be stopping by to chat with guests interested in learning more about -and tasting- these truly spectacular wines.

European Wine Week
Monday September 15th, 2014
In September, The Bartolotta Restaurant Group will be hosting three outstanding wine dinners in one week. On Monday the 15th, along with Bacchus our sister restaurant, we will be hosting two sets of Italian winemakers. Meanwhile Lake Park Bistro, our French restaurant, will be hosting their first Bordeaux wine dinner in several years (Bordeaux wine makers are hard to come by).
Here at Ristorante Bartolotta, we will be honored to host two heavy weights of the Italian wine world: Alberto Chiarlo of Michele Chiarlo and Raffaele Boscaini of Masi.
Michele Chiarlo is a very well known winery in Piedmont. They produce the region's staple wines such as Barbera, Moscato d'Asti, Arneis, Gavi and Barolos from a variety of vineyards located throughout the area's most sought-after sites. Their label is synonymous with great quality-price ratio.
Masi is also a respected winery in their region of the Veneto. Their name is synonymous with solid, well-made, well-balanced wines. They also produce their region's staple wines such as Valpolicella & Amarone as well as single varietal wines based on the region's indigenous grapes. Our guest from Masi, Raffaele, is the youngest son of Sandro Boscaini, President of Masi Agricola, with whom he shares the love of the land and wine as well as the skillful art of wine production. He received his certificate from the "Wine & Spirit Educational Trust" in Great Britain. He recently became Masi's Marketing Director
Join us for this one of a kind event and meet these two influential figures of northern Italian wines. A Barolo producer, an Amarone producer, two remarkable guests and one unforgettable evening of outstanding wines and great regional Italian cuisine.
