Free for wine club members. This tasting will begin with vintage Negronis (Campari is from Milan) including Campari from the 60's and 90's and Gin from the 60's. After dosing the taste buds with that bittersweet symphony we'll move onto a flight of Franciacorta, the greatest sparking wine region in Italy. This is a region set on Lake Iseo in the Alpine foothills about an hour east of Milan. From there we'll drive north to Valtellina, a valley fully in the Alps where nebbiolo vineyards cling to the south facing slopes on the north side of the valley. The vineyards are so steep and remote that some grapes are carried down by helicopter! The result is very different than Barolo: a much more perfumed and delicate expression of Nebbiolo.
