    11.00 Tuscany - The New Frontier        Steven Spurrier                       

    Speaker: Steven Spurrier

    Tuscany is famous for its prestigious trio of often very expensive DOCG wines: Chianti Classico, Brunello di Montalcino and Vino Nobile di Montepulciano. On the coast, to the south and west of these appellations, lies Italy’s new frontier: Bolgheri and the Maremma, where some of the most exciting new wines are emerging. Steven Spurrier leads this masterclass, comparing Tuscany’s most established wines with today’s outstanding rising stars.

    Speaker: Ian d'Agata

    Names such as Bussia, Cannubi and Brunate are renowned vineyards in the Barolo area, producing wines that command premium prices, but what defines them in terms of taste and style? Ian D’Agata, an Italian based award-winning journalist and professional wine lecturer with specialist knowledge of Barolo, takes us through the fascinating world of these sought-after, single vineyard wines.

To celebrate this, a group of top family producers has come together to share the unique qualities of this exceptional wine, which, due to the bespoke grape-drying process, gives an extraordinarily complex tasting sensation.
