It's that time of the year again- the Gambero Rosso Tre Bicchieri tastings will be held in San Francisco, New York and Chicago beginning next week. These tastings feature wines that have been awarded a Tre Bicchieri (three glasses) rating - the highest possible - from Gambero Rosso, Italy's leading wine guide. 
More than 100 wineries will participate, representing 19 of the 20 regions of Italy. The variety of wines, as you would expect at a tasting of this caliber, will be remarkable. You will be able to taste Barolo from producers such as Massolino, Elvio Cogno and Fontanfredda along with Brunello di Montalcino from Biondi-Santi, Canalicchio di Sopra and La Togata. There will also be some great Tuscan reds from Antinori, Colle Massari, Fontodi and Felsina along with some gorgeous reds from Valle Reale and La Valentina from Abruzzo as well as top red wines from Mastroberardino (Campania), Cottanera and Planeta from Sicily and some lovely examples of Amarone from Speri, Tenuta Sant'Antonio and Musella.
As far as sparkling and white wines, there is also an impressive representation. Some of Franciacorta's finest wines from producers such as Guido Berlucchi, Ferghettina, La Montina and Ricci Curbastro will be poured along with Ferrari from Trentino. As for white wines, you will be able to sample from Cantina Tramin, Cantina Terlano and Elena Walch from Alto Adige; Livon, Collavini and Zuani from Friuli along with Soave from Pieropan and Verdicchio from Garofoli and Umani Ronchi

The Le Marche region has a lot to offer to wine lovers and gourmets from the prestigious and famous Verdicchio, Lacrima di Morro d'Alba and Vernaccia di Serrapetrona, a first DOCG of the Region, to the Pecorino or Passerina, rediscovered wines that recently hit the headlines. Also the Rosso Conero and Rosso Conero Riserva DOCG wines, two great reds native to the vineyards of just seven municipalities in the Le Marche province of Ancona. The Le Marche where all these wines are found have mountains and hills gently sloping down to the coast, a great terroir, essential for the growth of great wines. In 2012, Le Marche produced 920,000 hl (10.2 million cases) of wine. There are 16 DOC and 5 DOCG wines, these spread throughout the Marche region, thus confirming the high level of quality reached by this wonderful regions wine production. Many of these wines are little known outside of Italy but visitors to the region have a pleasant surprise when they try the local wine produced by many small aziendas and cantinas.
