Seminar September 17th 2017
Join us as we host Bill Nesto, Master of Wine, and Frances Di Savino, authors of the recently published book, Chianti Classico: The Search for Tuscany’s Noblest Wine, bring the story of the true Chianti to Hilton Head Island. Interspersed between tutored tastings of Chianti Classico wines from different terroirs, Fran and Bill describe their adventures researching their ground-breaking and authoritative book. The Chianti Classico appellation stretches across high hills between Florence and Siena. Its scenic beauty obscures its turbulent history known as the Chianti wars in which producers from throughout Tuscany jousted among themselves for the right to call their wines Chianti. Chianti is also the crucible in which Sangiovese wines were first developed and perfected. Join us for this remarkable tour of Chianti and its Chianti Classico wines. Attendees will receive a signed copy of Chianti Classico: The Search for Tuscany’s Noblest Wine signed by the authors.
