The setting felt proper and yet had the vibe that you were drinking with an old friend. Our tasting included five different levels of Chiantis which, without Vittorio’s instruction, would have tasted fairly similar had I not been instructed on how to properly taste the major differences, qualities, and processes that made each wine (and every wine) unique. He also paired each wine with a food that complimented the taste if the wine. After the enlightening course, Vittorio recommended that we take a short stroll on the way back towards the bridge to Piazza Michaelangelo. The panoramic view of Florence (probably aided also by the nice wine buzz) was for lack of a better word amazing.Also, only a small hike further up the hill, is an even better view from a beautiful church built back around 900 AD. This church, however, cannot be expressed in words and I can only recommend that you go there and feel it first hand.
I thank Vittorio for advising us on how to cap off the experience and highly highly highly recommend Florence Wine Academy. I wish all who heed my advice the same outstanding experience that I had the pleasure of enjoying.
Vittorio is a great techer and we want to thank him for the wonderful wine tasting experience we had in Florence! We recommend!!
