ICONS OF TUSCANY MASTERCLASS
“We are all pilgrims who seek Italy”
– Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
This is a unique masterclass and a rare opportunity for any lover of Italian wine – taste 8 wines side by side from some of the finest producers – not just of Tuscany – but all of Italy. These names are synonymous with fine Italian wine and today are sought after by collectors the world over.
The last thirty years has seen Tuscany experience an investment boom and winemaking renaissance. This, combined with the widespread use of non-Indigenous varieties and a greater understanding of the potential of the region’s finest native grape, Sangiovese, has led to a surge in quality.
This masterclass provides a unique view of the present state of Tuscany through the lens of Chianti Classico and the nearby costal region around Bolgheri, home to the famed Super Tuscans. Learn about these traditional and modern sub-zones that make up this diverse region, the background of these famous estates and why these wines are considered some of the great wines of the world.
We’ll also have the legendary Fontodi Olive Oil pouring on the night. Easily one of the the world’s finest example of this Tuscany’s classic, essential ingredient.
