The collection, which used to be known as Anteprima, will showcase the latest 2006 vintage in a sit-down sommelier service tasting at Somerset House on May 19. The new format
allows members of the UK trade and press
to choose which wines they want to
be brought to a tasting table by a sommelier.
The event will also feature a walk-round, self-pour tasting of the 2006 and 2005 vintages of Chianti Classico and the 2004 Chianti Classico Riservas.
Consorzio president Marco Pallanti said: " This major tasting event
will provide the UK wine trade with a chance to taste the excellent 2006 vintage of Chianti Classico and reinforce Chianti Classico's commitment to the UK market."
Peter McCombie MW and Pallanti will present tutored seminars on altitude in Chianti Classico and Sangiovese from Chianti Classico compared
with other regions . To book a place contact email@example.com or call 020 7089 3852.
