Italy is known for its outstanding, ageworthy, food-friendly red wines. In this class we will dive into the top red wines of Italy – the most famed, the most coveted, and those widely considered the most prestigious. We’ll discuss the history, the terroir, and why these wines are so famed and delicious. We’ll explore:
- Chianti Classico Riserva
- Brunello di Montalcino
I will briefly discuss Sagrantino di Montifalco as well.
These wines are quite costly. As a reminder, you never have to buy all the wines for the class – get what your budget allows. If you have a Coravin device, this class would be a good use for it! For this class, I can also recommend less expensive alternatives so you can taste the region and the grape and get a sense for what we are discussing without breaking your budget.
This is a focus class. We will NOT review the basics of tasting or give an overview of Italy. These are more intense classes so I recommend you take an overview class before taking a focus class.
