Brunello di Montalcino class

Vino’s Italian Wine classes continue on September 24

Brunello is unique among Italian appellations in that nearly all of its producers are members of the Brunello Consortium.

Vino’s Italian wine classes are back for Fall! This Autumn we are offering more wine and food classes than ever before, each focussing on a fascinating aspect of Italian wine and wine-making culture. Our first class of the new term, Italian Wine 101 on September 17, is almost sold out, but classes continue the following week with Brunello di Montalcino!

The town of Montalcino (not to mention the world's wine commmunity) was rocked by allegations of fraud earlier this year.

In recent years, Brunello di Montalcino has become one of Italy’s hottest and most talked-about appellations. In the 1960s, there were literally a handful of producers of Brunello. Today, they number in the hundreds. The growth can be attributed in part to the attention the appellation has received from the American wine press. Brunello lore has grown also thanks to a string of excellent and historic vintages in the 1990s as well as fantastic harvests like the 2000 and 2001.

Brunello class participants will taste wines in the expert company of Jim Hutchinson, DWS. Light food will also be served.

Vino’s resident Brunello authority Jim Hutchinson, DWS, leads a tasting of ten wines from Montalcino and sheds light on the recent Brunello scandal involving some of its most famous producers.
