IWM Host: Will Di Nunzio
Most Americans fall in love with Toscana first--after all, it's the home of Vernaccia, Chianti Classico, Brunello di Montalcino, and Super-Tuscan wines! This event celebrates everyone's first, favorite Italian wine region with a handpicked list of exceptional Tuscan wines. Let a knowledgeable IWM sommelier take you on a tour of Toscana, and get an insider's point of view as you explore Tuscan's many splendored reds, piquant whites, and surprising sparklers. Learn to tell your Sangiovese Grosso from your Sangiovese and your Vermentino from your Trebbiano, come to understand why Toscana is so hospitable to "international" grapes, and study what makes Super Tuscans so special, all while tasting a range of Vini Toscani. From mineral-laden whites to lithe light reds to burly big rosso wines, this tasting, accompanied by regional meats and cheeses, will add to your wine education, deepen your passion for Italian wines, and let you experience Toscana without the plane fare. It's the next best thing to seeing Michelangelo's David in person!
