Where is Vin Ruspo produced? Which is the smallest and the biggest subzone in Chianti? Over the last three decades, in which vintages was Brunello di Montalcino Riserva not produced?
These are just some of the head-scratchers posed to the 13 participants in the Italian Sommelier Association Master del Sangiovese competition held yesterday, November 25, 2008, in Dozza (Emilia-Romagna).
The title went to Ms. Simona Bizzarri of Arezzo (Tuscany), pictured left. The event included blind tasting, pairing, and written questions.
