Our fantasies usually involve the women who drink our wine,
not the ones who make it. Savanna Samson has caused us
to reconsider. As we talk over a glass [of wine]…Samson lets
down her hair, and we get down to the business of uncorking
some favorites from her personal collection.
Savanna’s Picks: The robust Binomio from Fattoria La
Valentina ($50) is the result of a collaboration between two of
Italy’s most dynamic winemakers, Stefano Inama and Sabatino
di Properzio. Made entirely with montepulciano grapes, the
Binomio displays lots of mineral character with strong hints of
cassis. “This delicious wine is so earthy you can practically feel
the terroir as you’re drinking it,” Samson says. “Plus I’m all over
anything that has bi in its name.”
