Anteprima Chianti Classico 2012

A visit to Anteprima Chianti Classico is a must if you are interested in the famous DOCG wines of Chianti

Held in mid February 2012 in Firenze it brings together the finest producers from Chianti

At the entrance to the great hall, Carolyna e Roberto

The Great Hall. What an event. The best wines from Chianti ranging from Chianti, Chianti Classico to Chianti Classico Riservas. This is certainly one of the top winemaking areas of Italy.

The wines were well displayed and in many cases the owner was present

Just for tasting

Nicolo Montecchi (part of the owning family) from Villa Cigliano

This is our new wine from Chianti. It will be available from June this year in Australia. L'Espresso, one of Italy's leading wine guides rates it in the top six Chianti Classico wines at 18 points out of a maximum of 20

This is a very well organised event at a perfect location.
Can't wait for 2013
