"Two for the Price of One" (Winemakers!)
Date of tasting: 08/07/2009
Location: Old School House, Tittensor
Invitation to a Very Special Italian Wine Tasting
At Old School Wines
On Wednesday 8th July 2009
7pm to 9.30pm
We are delight to welcome not one but Two of our Italian producers to the Old School House for what promises to be a memorable tasting.
1st there’s Dr Giovanella Fuggazza from Castello do Luzzano.
Her 120ha estate has been continuously producing wines for over 1,000 years and sits on a hill top half in Emilia-Romagna and half in Lombardia. Perhaps her greatest claim to fame was that the late, great, Frank Sinatra was a big fan of her wines; they are also big favourites with many Old School customers.
She will be showing the following wines:
· Malvasia Colli Piacentini
· Malvasia Tasto di Seta
· Umore Nero
· Vena Rossa
· Luzzano 270
Plus Mr Michael Schmelzer of Monte Bernardi Vineyard, Toscana
A mere 900 year old vineyard near Panzano in the heart of ‘Chianti-shire’ Michael is a newcomer to the wine business, purchasing the estate back in 2003. He has just 6ha in production and he only makes around 600 cases of one of the finest Chianti Classico’s we’ve ever tasted. As we couldn’t let him come all this way and only show one wine, he’ll be showing his two ‘Super-Tuscan’s’ as well.
‘Sa-Etta’ (Thunderbolt) is a very limited production (100 cases) Chianti Classico
‘Tzingana’ (Gypsy) is another 100 case-r but this time Cabernet-Merlot-Petit Verdot in the true ‘super-Tuscan’ mould.
This is sure to be a fascinating tasting and a great opportunity to meet two very interesting wine makers.
