This year’s Italian Chamber’s annual FLAVOURS OF ITALY promotion focuses exclusively on CHIANTI CLASSICO and will feature, during the entire month of October, nine CHIANTI CLASSICO wines displayed in 30 selected BC Liquor Stores throughout British Columbia.
On Friday, October 9th, from 4pm to 6pm we are organizing a CHIANTI CLASSICOtasting at the Cambie Kitchen inside a Signature BC Liquor Store on Cambie and 39th Ave in Vancouver.
Come and delight your palate with 9 fabulous Chianti Classico wines, produced exclusively in the restricted Chianti Classico DOCG production area in Tuscany, and taste delicious Tuscan style antipasti !
The Chianti Classico sub region covers an area of approximate 100 square miles between two famous Tuscan cities, Florence and Siena. To have the right to a denomination and to display the famous black rooster logo, the Chianti Classico DOCG must be produced from grapes grown exclusively in this specific territory and under strict rules and conditions enforced by the Chianti Classico Wine Consortium. One of the rules specifies that along with a minimum of 80% of Sangiovese grape variety, other red grapes of the area can be used in a maximum percentage of 20%.
