Italy is most famous for wines made from its indigenous grapes. There are more than 500 nationally registered native grapes. However, the role of non-indigenous (international and traditional) grape varieties in production of great Italian wines should not be overlooked at all. The Super Tuscan is one of the best examples on how Italian wines made from international grapes such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot can achieve the same high-quality standards as those produced from their home country – France. There are also great examples of local wines made from Pinot Nero (Pinot Noir), Syrah, Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio (Pinot Gris) and so on that you may find in different parts of Italy. In certain regions, some of these grapes are considered as traditional rather than international as they have been introduced to and grown on the local soils for hundreds of years like Merlot in Friuli and Cannonau (Grenache) and Carignano (Carignan) in Sardinia.

In this comprehensive three-hour masterclass, our renowned Italian wine educator – Justin Chen DipWSET, IWA, IWS will guide the participants to taste 29 top-level Italian wines (a new record for our masterclass at this school!) made from international or traditional varieties across the country (from the northernmost region of Valle d’Aosta to the southernmost territory of Sicily) and discuss the relevant cultural and terroir influences that make these wines to have their own unique styles and characteristics, the “Italian twist”.  This is certainly an eye-opening journey for wine lovers at various levels and a Don’t Miss opportunity for any Italian wine lovers.

Here are highlights of some of the wines to be tasted:

Ferrari Perl Trento, Ronco Del Gelso Pinot Grigio Sot Lis Rivis Isonzo, Kettmeir Muller Thurgau Athesis, Michele Satta Viognier “Giovin Re”, Les Cretes Chardonnay, Castello della Sala Pinot Nero, Fontodi Case Via Pinot Nero, Musso Serafino Riserva Breganze, Il Colle Come Se, Campo di Magnacosta Tenuta di Trinoro, Stefano Amerighi Syrah Apice, Fattoria Carpineta Fontalpino Do Ut Des Supertuscan, Guado al Tasso Bolgheri Superiore, Montevetrano and Turriga Isola Dei Nuraghi Rosso.  

We sincerely look forward to your support and participation in this great event, our first in-person wine masterclass after the fifth wave of the Covid pandemic. Say goodbye to Zoom and see you at our lovely school!
