Any wine professional or oenophile can tell you that now is an incredibly exciting moment in the world of Italian wines. A whole new generation of winemakers are turning to more innovative and experimental winemaking systems, organic production and an increasing emphasis on once forgotten indigenous grapes, with dazzling results. Discontent with merely ruling the old-world wine scene, an impressive cohort of Italian vintners are intent on also proving themselves a worthy rival of new-world wine producers.
The Vini Nuovi Wine Experience will introduce you to a quality selection of new and noteworthy Italian wines in a private wine tasting at your luxury villa in Italy
, led by expert sommelier Fabrizio Fiaschi.
Out with the old, in with the new Italian wines
This private in-villa wine tasting will be led by Fabrizio who has hand-picked five new, biodynamic and unusual Italian wines for you to try. He will spotlight vintners placing their unique spin on century-old traditions that have secured Italy’s reputation as one of the world’s leading wine-growing countries. I Vini Nuovi Wine Tasting offers a fascinating insight into innovative winemaking systems, like the ancestral and Charmat methods, as well as ancient ageing processes using clay amphora vessels. Fabrizio will deepen your understanding of each wine and introduce you to flavours of rare indigenous grape varieties, while regaling you with stories behind their production, all from the privacy of your Italian holiday rental.
Each tasting is accompanied by a fine selection of Tuscan cold cuts, cheese and bread that best compliments the flavour profiles of the new wines you will be sampling.
