TUSCANY ADVANCED WINE CLASS

Monday, November 7 | 4PM PT / 7PM ET

When my wine students return from Tuscany, I often ask them why they came back? ! Tuscany has it all -- not only the wine, but the culture, the food, the beautiful hills and the sea. Tuscany “owns” the Sangiovese grape with such great wines as Chianti Classico Riserva, Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, and of course one of the best quality/priced wines, Brunello di Montalcino. And, of course we will discuss and taste the “new” region of Italy, Bolgheri, with its powerful wines and international grape varieties such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah. Get your parmigiano-reggiano ready! Registration is $100 per household/Zoom link.

The specific selection of wine, and vintage, can vary state to state but will always be similar in style. All wines have been personally tasted and selected by Kevin. This class will run 1-1/2 hours.

After this tasting, you will know the differences of body, weight, acidity of Pinot Noir vs. Sangiovese vs. Cabernet Sauvignon all from highly rated wines.
