The Search for the True Chianti

Date:

Location: 

Geological Lecture Hall, 24 Oxford Street

Bill Nesto, Master of Wine; Co-Founder, Wine Studies Program, Metropolitan College, Boston University; Senior Lecturer, Metropolitan College and School of Hospitality Administration, Boston University

Frances Di Savino, Attorney and Author

For most of the twentieth century, the name Chianti brought to mind a generic Italian red table wine in a straw-covered flask, rather than evoking the storied wine region in the heart of Tuscany. Bill Nesto and Frances Di Savino, co-authors of Chianti Classico: The Search for Tuscany’s Noblest Wine, will share the story of their quest to discover the true Chianti. They will describe the evolution of Chianti as a wine region with historic, cultural, and geographic complexity, then guide guests through a tasting of wines from one of Chianti Classico’s iconic estates.
