Beyond Chianti: Interesting Italian Wines
The amour for Italian wines is abundant in the City of Brotherly Love! We just can’t seem to get our fill of Chianti and Super Tuscans. Sangiovese (the grape found in Chianti) wines are produced in central Tuscany, the birthplace of some of the best wines in the world. But there are so many interesting Italian grapes that you probably haven’t discovered. An official Italian survey found there are roughly 440 different varietals of Italian grapes that become wines! While we can’t promise we’ll take you through all 440 varietals, we will take you through a few of our favorites.
These are some of the most delectable wines in the world–and the good news is they can be very wallet-friendly! Join us as we taste some lesser known Italian varietals that we love and we know you will too. Prepare to impress your friends with your newfound knowledge about some of the more unique and lesser-known varietals. This is one of our favorite classes, as we get transported to another world and explore all of the delicious wines (well, not quite all 440) Italy has to offer. Get your passports ready: we are going beyond Chianti, and into the interesting world of Italian wines.
