THE SMALLEST DOC IN TUSCANY, BORN IN 2010, WILL BE AT THE VERONA FAIR FROM 2 TO 5 APRIL SO YOU CAN DISCOVER THE WINES, BUT ALSO THE HISORY AND TERRITORY SOUTH-EAST OF THE SIENA PROVINCE
With its thousand hectares of vineyards, divided into the municipalites of Rapolano Terme, Asciano, Murlo, Sovicille and Monteroni d’Arbia, Grance Senesi DOC is the smallest in Tuscany, but it has a lot to tell through its excellent wines. For this reason, the Grance Senesi DOC Protection Consortium will be at Vinitaly 2023, from 2 to 5 April, at Pavillion 9 of Tuscany (Stand B12).
“The Verona fair will not only be the occasion to present the DOC labels to the general public, operators and the press – explained Don Antonio Bran, President of the Grance Senesi DOC – but also to make known a unique territory, that of the Crete Senesi, characterised by the alternation of hills and gullies, villages, churches and, of course, the Grance, in which viticulture is a very old tradition. All those who come to our stand will have the labels of the consortium winecellars at their disposal and can take an ideal trip through our terrtiory when tasting the wines. – he continues– It will be an opportunity to meet and exchange views and opinions in a stimulating environment full of ideas. We are small, – concludes the president – especially when compared with neighbours such as Chianti and Brunello, but for us this means that we have the potential to exploit and the room to grow.”
The DOC wines are also available at the Wine Bar of the Italian Sommelier Association – ISA – Road of Wines Arezzo Stand – Pavilion 9 – Tuscany.
It is possible to book tastings by email firstname.lastname@example.org or on the social networks @DocGranceSenesi.
