Gambero Rosso Tastings in NY and SF, March 14th & 16th

Hot diggety! The last word in Italian wine, Gambero Rosso (think of them as the Michelin guide to the wines of 'da Boot) has just released their 2005 Guide and they're celebrating by holding Tre Bicchieri tastings in San Francisco and New York. Tre Bicchieri, or "three glasses" is their highest rating for a wine, and hopefully this tasting will include many wines with that distinction (this year there are an unprecedented 264 wines to win that coveted award in all of Italy, the largest number ever, I believe). So if you have any interest in Italian wine whatsoever, this is an event not to miss.
