1997 Super Tuscan Dinner

Friday, June 25, 2010


Coco Pazzo Chicago
300 West Hubbard
Chicago, IL

$275 per person (all inclusive)


1997 was a watershed vintage in Tuscany. Wines produced that year are widely considered to be the best of the decade and among the finest of the last fifty years. Nature created magic in 1997, and now is a great time to enjoy these alluring wines.

Join us for a rare opportunity to enjoy a full range of Super-Tuscans from this historic vintage. They will be paired with the award-winning cuisine of Chicago’s Coco Pazzo, a highly acclaimed restaurant devoted exclusively to the food and wine of Tuscany. Chef Chris Maccia will create a special four course dinner to complement these exceptional wines.

"1997 is a spectacular vintage in Tuscany. Having completed almost all the tastings of the major 1997s from Tuscany, I can unequivocally state that this is the greatest Tuscan vintage I have ever tasted. It surpasses 1985." - Robert Parker
