For many wine and food lovers, Tuscany means Italy and represents the best this country has to offer. Geographically, Tuscany is the rich heart of Italy, and this is where the butter/cow’s milk cheese cooking of the north meets and overlaps the olive oil/sheep’s milk cheese cooking of the south. If you love Italy, it’s the best of all possible worlds.
In this 2-hour class, we’ll embark on a wine-tasting tour of Tuscany that will help you get familiar with the personalities and flavors of wine from this always delightful region. We’ll start with some relatively undiscovered white wines like Vermentino and Trebbiano – two white grapes you just have to meet, especially if you’re a red wine lover who doesn’t love white wine yet! – and then we dive into the rich world of Tuscan reds: Chianti, Morellino di Scansano, Montecucco, Montalcino, and more.
You’ll experience a wide range of flavors from Tuscany, and you’ll go home with a few new favorites. Get ready to know your Morellino from your Brunello from your Sangiovese. So many wines, so little time!
