Evolution & Ageability: Italy’s Native Grapes MultiVintage Vertical Tasting
Tue, 2 May 2017, 4:00 PM – 5:00 PM MDT
A multi-vintage vertical tasting
Taste and explore the age-worthiness of some of Italy’s best known wines produced from some of the country’s most important native grape varieties. The age-worthiness of wines such as Barbaresco and Brunello di Montalcino is well known and documented, but don’t overlook the ability to age of wines such as Carmignano and Verdicchio. We experience the evolution and age-ability of these wines through this rare multi-vintage vertical tasting.
Seminar led by: Ian D’Agata (Ian D’Agata has been writing and lecturing about food and wine for more than 25 years. He is currently the senior editor at Vinous and the Scientific Advisor of Vinitaly International and the Scientific Director of the Vinitaly International Academy. His book The Native Wine Grapes of Italy was the 2015 Louis Roederer International Wine Awards book of the year and is viewed as the definitive text to Italy’s native grapes and wines. He was named Italy’s Best Wine Journalist in 2012 (and Best Young Wine Journalist in 2007) by the Comitato Grandi Crus d’Italia.)
The producers whose wines are presented in this seminar will be present to speak to their wines.
