The Tuscan Classics experience is for you who want to dig a little deeper and taste the most well-known regions and styles of Tuscany. Say you already enjoy drinking wines from different places, you’re visiting Florence and you want to spend an afternoon educating your palate a little?
Then this tasting is for you!
Your Sommelier will take you through the history of Tuscany and its wine-growing regions. We will teach you how to taste wine properly & how to read the label. As we taste, we’ll go through the main historical wine regions of Tuscany and you will get a deep understanding of the king of Tuscan grapes, the Sangiovese. You will also understand the concept of territory and designation of origin.
This experience is both informative and fun. In just a couple of hours, you will learn a lot, and will taste 6 top Tuscan wines from different areas, including the famous Brunello di Montalcino!
Sessions will be confirmed with a min. of 4 participants and a max of 10.
