With its myriad regional specialities and indigenous grape varieties, Italy can be at once fascinating, daunting and confusing to the wine drinker. Too many people take sanctuary in the reassuring words 'Pinot Grigio' on the label - but Italy has so much more to offer! We will taste the fragrantly spicy whites from the volcanic soils of Campania, made from ancient varieties such as Greco di Tufo. We will discover the majestic Nebbiolo grape, responsible for powerhouse wines such as Barolo and Barbaresco. Finally, we untangle the meanings of the label terminology - Riserva, Classico and DOC, what do these words or letters actually tell you about the juice in the bottle? Tonight, we find out!
All tastings include: minimum of 7 wines sourced locally so you can find them easily if you like them, full tasting notes, tasting sheet, and use of professional tastings glasses.
