Each wine-tasting experience includes the tasting of 3-4 wines, with ample varietal choice between Chianti Classico, Super Tuscans, our ‘Icon’ wines or white wines. Each tasting is always accompanied by typical bruschetta bread with our Nozzole EVO oil and local delicacies. Besides the tasting, it is also possible to visit our oak barrel (barriques) ageing cellar and our collection of historical vintages.
The tour includes a visit of the oak barrel ageing cellar at the Nozzole Estate, our collection of historic vintages from 1980 and a guided tasting discovering the secrets of the most representative grape variety of the Tuscan terroir: Sangiovese.
We will guide you along a sensory journey explaining how terroir of origin and different winemaking methods give distinctive characteristics to the same 100% Sangiovese blends. A journey that will take you from Florence to Siena, exploring the history of winemaking written by famous wines like Chianti Classico, Nobile di Montepulciano and Brunello di Montalcino.
These wines are called Baby SuperTuscans, because, while sharing the same grape blends as their senior ‘cousins’ SuperTuscans, they do not undergo any aging in wood, but only in steel. Such a winemaking technique makes them very fresh and easy to drink, soft on the palate and rich of fruit scents. They are perfect for aperitifs combined with Tuscan delicacies.
At Borgo del Cabreo there is a Wine Shop, which carries a selection of our excellent wines as well as our extra-virgin EVO olive oil. For a complete offering of our products, we suggest a visit to the Wine Shop at Tenuta di Nozzole where you can also book a wine tour and tasting.
