Classic Tuscan Red Wines

  • City: Florence
  • Duration: Approximately 45-60 minutes

Overview

This wine tasting takes place under the vaulted ceiling of the Enoteca Alessi wine bar, surrounded by glass cabinets filled with fine grappas, whiskies and cognac. Your sommelier will take you through Tuscany's best flavors in this fascinating tour entirely dedicated to Tuscan wines and delicacies.

You will have the chance to taste three of the best red wines in the world: Chianti Classico Riserva, Vino Nobile di Montepulciano and Brunello di Montalcino, accompanied by traditional bruschette and a selection of the best cured meats and cheeses of the area.

Finish with a glass of historic Vin Santo; this sublime sweet dessert wine is enjoyed along with cantuccini - typical, hard almond biscuits that come from the nearby city of Prato.

The four of us enjoyed tasting wines from Tuscany that we might otherwise not been introduced to - wines from limited production and small wineries - tucked away in the Tuscan hills.
