Roberto took over the winery from his father about 20 years ago and has, year by year, improved quality to an extent where he has won the top award of ‘3 glasses’ in the prestigious ‘Gambero Rosso’ wards, a slow food award, recommended in Decanter Magazine and an amazing 18 points by Jancis Robinson who described him as ‘a wine maker to watch’. He has a small vineyard of around 8 ha, farms bio-dynamically and at around a mere 35,000 bottles a year is a small producer in Chianti Classico. Roberto will present a range of his Chianti Classico red wines including some vertical vintages including 2006 and 2007 and the amazing 1998 showing how Chianti Classico can age. This is a rare opportunity to taste some Chianti Classico which sells at over €70 a bottle in Italy. Ticket Price £27.50.  6.00pm
