OASI DEGLI ANGELI KURNI MARCHES’11 – In 2010, Milano Finanza, Italy’s answer to the Wall Street Journal, had the nation’s top 5 wine arbiters choose the best wine in the country. So, the Gambero Rosso and 4 other wine guides put their heads together and made their selection. A Barolo perhaps? An Amarone? Maybe a Brunello or Super Tuscan? None of the above! The best wine in Italy was Kurni, a Montepulciano made like no other, a special wine made in an innovative and particular way that that bordered on mad genius! Many wine-lovers who hadn’t been paying attention to what was becoming Italy’s most sought after cult wine were shocked! But had they been following the developments for years, the decision might have seemed inevitable. In 2011, to honor Italian unity, Kurni was chosen to present to the President Of The Republic! Stan The Wine Man found this wine 15 years ago and has been its importer and champion from the beginning, espousing its virtues and claiming its rightful status from the outset. Nice to know that someone from Pittsburgh has been cultivating a dedicated local following for such an unknown but prestigious wine all these years.  And we thought he was just another pretty face cruising around town.”…….199.99
