Little known in the United States, Valcalepio is a wonderful wine growing area in the province of Bergamo, Lombardia, Italy. I have a special reason for loving the enchanting city of Bergamo which has existed since 49 B.C. but I will tell you that story further on.
First I would like to talk about the wonderful wines I tasted this past week at an event held at the fabulous Enoteca DiPalo on Grand Street in New York City where we enjoyed some of the perfect wines of Cantina Sociale Bergamasca in the DOC zone called Valcalepio.
The charming and engaging wine-maker Vanessa Verdoni along with her fellow wine-maker the accomplished Emanuele Medelago Albani presented these very applaudable wines which we hope will soon be coming to the NY area.
