American Presidents Donald Trump and Barack Obama are both visiting Italy.
It is indeed a very rare and fortuitous coincidence. The current and the last US President are both in our beautiful country. The former reached Rome yesterday, the latter is roaming around Siena happily with his wife Michelle.
Our country can only fascinate these two exceptional men, with its cities full of unique artistic and historical heritage. Besides, they will get to enjoy the best of our cuisine and wines. Barack Obama, with the help of Francesco Bartolotta, has already explored Italian wines, and Tuscan wines in particular. We are looking forward to find out what Donald Trump will get a taste of.
At I Balzini we would offer Trump an austere wine, typical of our region, I BALZINI White Label ’98. A vintage wine because only age can gift this bold 50% Sangiovese and 50% Sauvignon its Tuscan impression. With time, this wine loses its Cabernet plant-like notes, leaving room for the Sangiovese, conferring the wine its final character: a taste of blackberries.
For Obama we have chosen I BALZINI Black Label 2001, an extraordinary year. This Bourdeaux brand can provide strong olfactory emotions. The grapes grow in a vineyard of Pliocene origin, rich in fossils and organic sea substances. The Cabernet Sauvignon is refined by the Merlot, that makes it seductive and its scents unforgettable.
