Here is what's in store for you

Are tired of having the usual Chianti or Sangiovese of Tuscany in your glass? Are you curious to go beyond the usual Bolgheri, Brunello, Montepulciano, etc? Then the "The Natives of the Renaissance" tasting is just the thing for you: you will have the opportunity to taste Tuscan wine that goes beyond Sangiovese while staying comfortably in downtown Florence, train your senses with unusual scents and aromas, and embrace the unexpected pleasure!

Your journey will start with Barsaglina which has the finesse of Pinot Noir and the structure of a mountain Nebbiolo, passing through the exceptional drinkability roundness of Foglia Tonda, and ending with the warmth of an adorable rebel, Pugnitello. You will taste 3 wines in total. For the Foglia Tonda and Pugnitello varietals, you have a choice of different interpretations of the same varietal at the time of tasting.

1. Barsaglina - IGT Toscana - 2019 by Monastero dei Frati Bianchi - 100% Barsaglina
2. Agellus - IGT Toscana Rosso - 2017 by Poggio al Gello or Foglia Tonda del Rinascimento - IGT Toscana - 2015 by Piandaccoli - both 100% Foglia Tonda
3. Pugnitello del Piaggione - IGT Toscana Rosso - 2016 by Poggio al Gello or Somatico - IGT Toscana Rosso - 2021 by Podere il Castellaccio - both 100% Pugnitello

In pairing, you'll enjoy one course of your choice from:
- selection of cured meats and cheeses
- wild rice with crispy vegetables

The tasting is part of the ABS tasting series - Anything But Sangiovese also available here on Winedering: Trebbiano does not exist, My name is Orpicchio, and Native reds with the intruder.
