The wine tasting course given by Vanino Negro, professor at the University of Padua and well-known wine expert, will resume on October 23. The course is divided into three evening sessions, the first on October 23, the second on November 6 and the last on November 13. This course will provide an in-depth examination of a number of wines and rounds-out the previously-held courses. Wines of Hungary (and not just Tokaj) will be tasted, including a Hungarian Franconia wine. There will also be Spanish wines: whites from the Rueda region and reds from Ribera and Rioja. The last evening will be dedicated to wines from Piedmont, an Italian region that is one of the sanctuaries of wine worldwide. A footnote: finalist of the Premio Campiello in Venice was the most recent work by Ligurian author Nico Orengo, entitled Di Viole e Liquirizia (Violets and Licorice), a highly-readable novel centered around wine production in the Langhe region. Read it for an unusual approach to learning about Piedmont wines.
