Nota

As it is known, the organoleptic qualities of a wine are also determined by the territory, the quality of its soil and its micro climate. The goal of a territorial tasting is the study of the characteristics of a territory and the influence on its wines. This type of tasting is made of wines produced in the same territory, in particular a specific appellation or wine region, and however not too excessively wide. Examples of territorial tasting could include Barolo wines coming from the five main areas, Burgundy's Pinot Noir or crus of Chablis. 3
