Meet the Winemaker - Marco Ricasoli - Rocca di Montegrossi
Mon 24 October 2016, 18:30 – 20:00 BST
This tasting is part of a series of "meet the producer" wine events taking place at Cafe Murano Covent Garden. This is a unique opportunity to taste some of the most exciting wines coming out of Italy in the company of the growers themselves. All of the wines are available to buy in the wine shop and many feature on the Cafe Murano wine list in the restaurant next door.
Rocca di Montegrossi is located near Monti in Chianti, one of the finest sections of Chianti Classico, about 7 km south of Gaiole in Chianti.
The cellars are near the Romanesque church of San Marcellino. Rocca di Montegrossi's owner, Marco Ricasoli-Firidolfi, is descended from a family that played a central role in the history of the Chianti region and laid the foundations for Chianti wine.
The evening begins with a 6:45pm arrival with welcome drinks, followed by an hour tasting at 7pm with Marco and a selection of his wines. You will also be entitled to a 10% discount on any purchases in the Pastificio on the day and if you would like to join us for dinner next door afterwards you can enjoy any wine purchased corkage free.
