The Association “La terracotta e il vino” has organised a dinner on Friday, March 31 at the Trattoria Da Burde in Florence (Firenze, Via Pistoiese, 6R). It will launch a series of evenings in which to discover more about wine in amphora. The cycle of dinners is entitled “The Ancient Future of Wine in Amphora”. Friday 31st is the first of many appointments that wish to offer, to anyone interested, the extraordinary experience of approaching the world of wine in amphora. The evening will be shared between the taste of Tuscan cuisine with Chef Paolo Gori, and the amphora wines of Casadei: Olianas and Petrolo, with a brief illustration on the techniques of winemaking in amphora. Andrea Gori, owner of Trattoria Da Burde and Vice-President of the Italian Sommelier Foundation -Tuscany, will lead the evening, speaking about the unusual characteristics of wine aged in an amphora, a neutral vessel that unlike wood does not confer perfumes or flavours to the wine. His brother Paolo will introduce and describe the courses of the set dinner. Leonardo Parisi president of the Cultural Association “La terracotta e il vino” and owner of the Artenova workshop from Impruneta will also be present at the dinner.
The Dinner is open to all. The cost is 45 Euro per person. For members of The Association “La terracotta e il vino” the cost is 35 Euro.
