San Francisco, CA, June 15, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- Founder and host of Wine Oh TV Monique Soltani has announced an upcoming video series based on her recent trip to Italy. Soltani was part of a group of wine experts and bloggers who were invited to attend the Chianti Classico Experience. The Chianti Classico Experience is 10 days of wine and food events, seminars, tastings, excursions, and games to get acquainted with Chianti Classico producers and their beautiful territory.
During the five-day adventure, Soltani toured many villages, wineries, and restaurants to report on a series of festivals in the Chianti Classico wine region. The new video series will cover Soltani’s visits to many events located in the scenic, rolling hills of rural Tuscany.
Soltani attended wine tasting events and festivals, and visited restaurants in the villages of Radda, San Leonino, and Greve in Chianti, among others. Viewers of the video series will experience the unique flavors of the wine, food, and culture of one of the most beautiful regions of Italy, as well as learn about the many producers of Chianti Classico wines. Soltani’s Chianti Classico experience included a visit to the new Antinori Winery in Chianti Classico, getting up-close and personal with the Mazzei Family at Castello di Fonterutoli, and dining with Mr. Meat himself, Dario Cecchini, also known as "The Butcher." Cecchini is famous for his butchery and theatrics in his own right, but he is also renowned for mentoring Star Chef Mario Batali as well as Batali’s father.
Chianti Classico and Chianti are, in fact, two very different wines. Chianti Classico wines are made almost exclusively from grapes of the Sangiovese variety and must be produced using certain methods within the Chianti Classico DOCG, or legally-controlled geographic area of production. If more than 10 percent of a wine includes anything besides Sangiovese grapes, it may not be called Chianti Classico. Chianti Classico can be easily spotted by the iconic Black Rooster on every bottle, which is the trademark of the Chianti Classico DOCG.
