Chianti 101 with Professor Cassidy
Did you know that your sense of smell is 10,000 times greater than your sense of taste? Also, don’t ever be intimated by a cork. It will come out eventually. And perhaps most importantly, Italians are not interested in winning wine awards, they are interested in how their wine tastes with dinner. These pearls of wisdom come courtesy of Professor Chip Cassidy, The Wine Nose.
In this edition, Professor Cassidy tastes, and smells, the Tiar d’Oro Fiorentini Chianti, which is characterized as sweet, delicious and very fruity on the nose. It is medium to light in body, dry and high in acidity. Learn about this verietal from Miami’s foremost wine expert. The Wine Nose is presented by Crown Wine & Spirits.
