A NOTE FROM NICK MUCCI, OWNER & PRESIDENT
After a couple years living in Italy, which began in Rome and culminated in an MBA in Food & Wine at the University of Bologna, I have decided to become an ambassador for small, high quality wineries and promote them in my home state of Massachusetts.
I was fortunate enough to discover every corner of Italy through day long drives in the Italian countryside, intense Ryanair flights, overnight trains or even buses on some of Italy’s windiest roads where you felt like you might not make it out alive!
Sometimes you stumble upon three generations working together in the vineyards, or a local festival where you taste that perfect wine and you realize all that crazy travel was worth it.
It was these adventures where I gained my appreciation and in depth understanding of Italian wine. Visiting smaller villages, wineries and agrotourisms I learned so much about what makes Italian wine so unique. I learned quickly that each region is so diverse in terms of the spectrum of food & wine but yet the local flavors are always a perfect match for the wine, and it’s this harmony that needs to be understood to truly appreciate Italian wine.
This portfolio is a celebration of my experiences in Italy and an invitation to the consumer to take these wines and make your own memories with them.
