This show is a recap of a the recent trip through Tuscany that my travel partner, Tourissimo, and I organized for a group of 19 Patrons (join Patreon so you can make the next one!). We go through the major DOCGs/DOCs we visited and I share some interesting things I learned and observed. A great one for armchair travel!
Here are the DOCGs we explored:
- Vernaccia di San Gimignano
- Vino Nobile di Montepulciano
- Chianti Classico
- Brunello di Montalcino
- Morellino di Scansano
And the DOCs Maremma and Bolgheri
My big takeaway from the trip: I am more optimistic than ever about Tuscan wines, which just keep getting better and better. If you don’t have experience with these wines, I would recommend checking them out (especially if you like Italian food since what grows together, goes together!).
