Pretty much since we opened ESS we’ve been champing at the bit to get Luca Fedrigo of L’Arco here for a wine dinner. Luca is the great artisanal prodigy of Amarone wine, having apprenticed under the legendary godfather, Giuseppe Quintarelli, from the age of 14 until he started L’Arco five years later (yes, at the tender age of 19). Luca now has nearly twenty vintages under his belt, and his wines are better than ever. We will be pouring his beautiful blended wines from the Valpolicella zone, as well as a Chianti Classico from his new project down in Tuscany. We hope you can help welcome one of our favorite winemakers to Atlanta.
