Wines by Region: Take a Trip Through Tuscany


With Elizabeth Hans McCrone

Arguably Italy’s most famous wine region, Tuscany is home to four of the country’s most important red wines: Chianti, Chianti Classico, brunello di Montalcino and vino nobile di Montepulciano. In this half-day, intensive course, we’ll be exploring Sangiovese, the red wine grape used in these classic varietals. We’ll also delve into Carmignano, Trebbiano, Vernaccia, Super Tuscans and Malvasia Bianca Lunga, the grape behind Tuscany’s famous dessert wine: vin santo.
