Discover Italy: Central
We continue our Italian discovery deep into the heart of Italy, where the most recognised region lies, Tuscany. Here we find the famous Sangiovese grape, the leading variety that has a major part to play in all the reds from this zone such as; Chianti, Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, Brunello and the hot-topical 'Supertuscans.' In addition we find the refreshing Vernaccia and in nearby Lazio is Frascati whilst in Umbria is Orvieto. The overall topical question must be tested - are the modern-Supertuscan reds a better purchase than the traditional Sangiovese-led wines of Tuscany? Only a tasting can decide...
This tasting is designed to explore the diverse variety of wines available from Italy produced from their fascinating indigenous grape varieties most of which are only found within Italy.
Big wine to look forward to: Chianti DOCG (& a Supertuscan)
All tastings include; minimum of 6 wines sourced locally so you can find them easily if you like them, full tasting notes, tasting sheet, use of professional tastings glasses and nibbles.
