ITALIAN RED WINES | Wine Tasting Class

 

GREAT ITALIAN WINES | BRUNELLO DI MONTALCINO

Brunello is a Tuscan wine typical of the Montalcino area. It was developed by Ferruccio Biondi Santi a little more than a century ago, and is produced exclusively from Sangioveto Grosso grapes, a Sangiovese clone. In 1980, Brunello di Montalcino was awarded the first Denominazione di Origine Controllata e Garantita - DOCG designation and is one of Italy's most expensive wines. Brunello can be aged for a long time, kept in the right way: in a cool cellar at a constant temperature, in the dark and laid horizontally.

TASTING NOTES | BRUNELLO DI MONTALCINO

A visibly limpid, brilliant wine, with a bright garnet colour. It has an intense perfume, persistent, ample and ethereal. Dry with a lengthy aromatic persistence, one can recognize scents of undergrowth, aromatic wood, berries, light vanilla and jam with an elegant harmonious body, vigorous and racy. It pairs perfectly with red meats, game, possibly accompanied by mushrooms and truffles. It is also excellent with structured cheeses. The wine should be served at a temperature of 18°C-20°C (65-68° F) in ample shaped rounded crystal glasses.

PROGRAM | ITALIAN RED WINES | WINE TASTING CLASS

And when you think this wine trip is over...we will open the doors to Verona, the home of Romeo and Juliet, sampling the mighty Amarone. Italy is one of the richest countries with regards to grape variety. Picking just five red wines out of the total 400 available wasn’t easy. In this "Italian red wines" master class, we will focus on the most renewed and reviewed wines of Italy.
During the Italian reds wine tasting sessions, students will learn all about the different wine producing areas, the types of soil and grape varieties. This wine tasting is also a great travel tips session for those that still haven't visited other regions outside of Tuscany.
