Chianti, the most famous and beloved of all Italian wines, offers a unique story. The only of Italy's wine to have two different DOCG designations. Chianti may be a simple quaffable red ready to drink within a few months of bottling or it may be an elegant, stylish red that requires a minimum of two years of age. How does Chianti differ from Chianti Classico? What is Riserva all about? Do you know the stories of the Chianti Putto and the Black Roster? To learn even more tidbits, join us for a tour of the vineyards of Chianti and Chianti Classico. Presented by NYWCA member Sharron McCarthy, Wines of Italy Hall of Fame awardee and Past President and Director Emeritus of the Society of Wine Educators.
