The Search for the True Chianti

December 1, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

$20

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. Guests must be 21+. Reservations can be made at https://reservations.hmsc.harvard.edu/Policies.aspx
