Wine and Terracotta in Italy and from around the World
“TERRACOTTA AND WINE” (22nd -23rd November 2014, Fornace Agresti, Impruneta)Sunday, 23rd November from 11.00 to 13.00 hours Guided wine tasting conducted by Francesco Bartoletti Experiences from 8 producers who have in common the choice of using terracotta for their wines
“We present a unique journey across continents and through a glass of wine, find out the extraordinary experiences of winemakers who have believed in a different material to conceive their wines. Stories of landscapes and environments, soil and climate, so very distant from one another yet close to each other for a common denominator; the terracotta used to produce them.
The interest shown by manufacturers around the world for this historical material, which has always been part of the wine world, has been truly extraordinary. The success of the terracotta of Impruneta, thanks to its unique characteristics, has allowed many growers to approach this material with ease and take an alternative pathway so special for their wines.
During the tasting you will be able to taste wines produced in different clays and apart from the terracotta of Impruneta, there will be wines produced in Spanish and Georgian terracotta”.
