Underbelly, the “new Southern Creole” restaurant by Chris Shepherd, known for its unconventional take on Southern fare, is hosting a wine dinner to feature Riccardo Campinoti, owner of Le Ragnaie in Tuscany, and Ronnie Sanders, owner of Vine Street Imports. As a wine creator and a wine importer, these two were moved to work together on a new project, Poggio Anima. Poggio Anima is “a fresh, new concept in Italian wines.” As their website states, “Poggio Anima translates to ‘Hill of Soul.’ Going back to the concept of Poggio Anima we wanted to capture the ‘soul’ of each vineyard and grape. No manipulation, no water, sugar, etc. Just the pure expression of the fruit and site. I would argue that many wines have a ‘soul,’ but very few weeknight wines share this. Poggio Anima has come along to change this.”
