Anteprima Vini della Costa Toscana 2019

Updated: Mar 17

My good friend and venerable member of the Italian wine press Mauro Giacomo Bertolli, suggested that a visit to this event would be highly rewarded so I contacted the press office and an invitation followed soon after.

The weather in Lucca on this Saturday morning was uncommonly wet and chilly, but approaching the magnificent building and gardens of Real Collegio in Piazza del Collegio my spirits were lifted.

Once the formalities were concluded, I ascended the impressive staircase to the press tasting rooms and introduced myself to a Sommelier that would assist me today with my tastings.
