You don't know Tuscany. Not yet, anyway - but we can help! Tomorrow night our Semi-Quasi-Tuscan Man in Residence, Blaine Verde, will be in the house at Solano Cellars! He's pouring a sexy sextet of some of Tuscany's greatest trans-millennial hits. Finally have the following burning questions answered by the man we call "The Professor".
What makes Chianti Classico... or not? Is all Sangiovese created equal? Where did the name "Vin Santo" come from, and how come my church wine never tasted like that? Did Brunello di Montalcino actually mean "OMG" in Etruscan? Is a Super-Tuscan just a really good Tuscan? What's the deal with off-the-grid places like Orcia and Montecucco - do I have to remember those names, too?
