Magazzino’s tastings experience
A sensorial experience that will involve sight, smell and, of course, taste.
Magazzino del Gusto offers guided tastings of wine and extra virgin olive oil, available every day upon reservation.
With the first, we want to convey to the taster the importance of the terroir (that is soils, climates, exposures, traditional winemaking, human factors in the vineyard…) and to point out how a wine changes depending on the production area even if the grapevine is always the same. With the second ones we want to transmit to the taster the importance of the cultivar and the variety of quality oils that we produce from north to south Italy, with a special consideration to the Tuscany area.
During each tasting, you can find gastronomic combinations of products for sale in the shop and tastings of cheeses from local small producers, bread and schiacciatine.
We are available to customize tastings on specific requests, both on the quantity and on the type of wines and oils.
CHIANTI CLASSICO FOR UGAs
UGAs (Additional Geographical Unit) are the most recent qualitative step toward the definition of the identity of Chianti Classico wines. 11 subzones have been identified within the administrative units composing the Chianti Classico Denomination within Siena and Florence. In this fascinating tasting you’ll have the chance to try some of them.
SANGIOVESE’S WAY ARE ENDLESS
Sangiovese, the most common black grape variety in Tuscany, has endless ways of taste. You will start by tasting 3 Tuscan wines, coming from the most important Tuscan denominations, such as Brunello di Montalcino, Chianti Classico, Nobile di Montepulciano, which have, basically, a majority of Sangiovese or are produced with 100% Sangiovese, to convey the importance of territory.
ONCE UPON A TIME… THERE WAS THE SUPER TUSCAN
Super Tuscan, what does it mean? From “once upon a time”, we will tell you the method of winemaking and the areas of production, but above all the story of the birth of this wine movement that gave the start to the Italian wine revolution in the 70s and 80s. Then, you will taste 3 different Super Tuscans, selected by our sommelier Giulio.
