Italian Wine Podcast Episode 493: Scienza Seminar Part 2 (ENG)
Audio from the wine2wine 2020 session featuring
Professor Attilio Scienza, Alessio Planeta & Stevie Kim
Professor Attilio Scienza will unpack the topic of international grape varieties through various case studies including Trentino-Alto Adige (ie San Michele and Foianeghe), Tuscany (with the experiences of Antinori and Sassicaia), Lombardy, Veneto, and Friuli. Some producers of the Conegliano school, lower Lazio and Campania, Irpinia, and Frusinate will round out the discussion. Of course, Scienza will delve into the cultural underpinnings (such as French influence) of vine diffusion as well as ties to the so-called “modern” viticulture that was born through post-phylloxera reconstruction.
