A Class on Super Tuscans - Italy's Napa!
Tuesday, March 13, 6-8:00, $79
No other category of Italian wine has made such an impact as that of the “Super-Tuscan”. These red wines have single handedly been responsible for the “renaissance” of Italian Wine. Many are of high quality and quite expensive (Tignanello, Sassicaia, Solaia). They are typically Sangiovese (key grape of Tuscany) with the addition of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot or Syrah. However, a Super-Tuscan can be pretty much anything. It can take the form of a single varietal such as Cabernet Sauvignon or any blend of varietals. Seven wines priced from $28-203/bottle will be enjoyed with Italian cheeses, salami and other flavors of Italy.
