Wine Tasting in the Trapp Family Lodge Wine Cellar
We will be tasting new releases of Italian Chianti, for inclusion on our list. Bill O’Connor of Baker Distributing, will be on hand to discuss the wines and answer any questions. In the centre of the Italy is Tuscany. This is the land of Chianti and of beautiful, rolling countryside, olive groves and cypress trees. Based on the Sangiovese grape, Chianti is normally a firm style of wine with a notable bitter edge, but plenty of ripe, cherry fruit and spicy, tobacco and herbal notes. The first notarial document in which the name Chianti appeared in reference to the wine produced in the zone dates to 1398 and in the 17th century exports to England became increasingly frequent. The Chianti wine-producing area was delimited in 1932 by ministerial decree and the boundaries have remained unchanged since then. The decree described the district where Chianti Classico is produced as the "the oldest zone of origin," thereby recognizing its primacy and according it a special identity. Chianti is not the only traditional wine made in Tuscany, and there are also new wines, usually based on sangiovese and some popular French grapes that are usually dubbed "Super Tuscans". The format will be casual, walk around with cheese and bread. The wines featured will be: Querceto, Chianti 2005; Ruffino, “Aziano”, Chianti Classico 2004; Sabatucci, Chianti Riserva 2002; Borgo Scopeto, Chianti Classico 2002; Vignamaggio, Chianti Classico 2001.
