INTRODUCTION TO CHIANTI
Wednesday 1st June 2022, 7.15pm
NOW SOLD OUT – WAITING LIST ONLY
“Introduction” to wine tastings are themed around grape varieties or regions. The format is informal, suitable for anyone with an interest in wine who might want to get a bit more understanding of the subject. They are tutored by John Hoskins, Master of Wine and owner of the hotel. We taste for about an hour and a half (8+ wines from the everyday to the very best). Then there’s an informal supper – 2 courses, a couple of glasses of wine, coffee.
The classic wine of Tuscany has evolved from simple trattoria quaffer to one of the seriously fine wines of the world. We will explore the Sangiovese grape in detail, tasting a full range from a light, relatively easy-drinking example to wines from the best estates in Chianti Classico, including Reservas, ‘Super Tuscans’ from the area and some rare, mature examples too. Producers include Isole e Olena, Fontodi and Felsina Berardenga.
Antipasti with the tasting will be followed by Tuscan beef ragu and then gelato.
