Stars of Central Italy with Michael Franz

2 hours, $85


Tuscany is rightly famous for the great wines of Chianti Classico and Brunello di Montalcino, but the swath of land stretching across the middle portion of the Italian “boot” produces many outstanding wines. In addition to several Tuscan standouts, we’ll also taste an array of the finest wines Umbria, Emilia-Romagna, The Marche and Abruzzo, learning about the key grape varieties as well as the growing conditions in the best sub-regions. A few whites and high-value wines will be included, but the emphasis will tilt toward reds of great complexity and distinction.
