SUNDAY 3,00pm Let’s play ad being winemaker for a couple of hours in the historic cellar at fattoria del Colle. You will produce your own Supertuscan wine to label, cork and take home to drink with friends. You will create your own wine just like true winemakers who in the past have created wines such as Sassicaia or Tignanello. A Supertuscan wine is one made with both autochthonous and international grape varieties, grown in Tuscany and united in creative ways without having to following the rules of any appellation. During this experience everyone will try to balance the various elements of wine: tannins alcohol, fruit and acidity … with the help of an expert taster, so as to create a Supertuscan onto which you can apply a label with your name, and then take home. It is just a game but teaches a lot about the character of wine and how to taste it.
