On September 24, 2022, subscribers to Opening a Bottle joined Editor-in-Chief Kevin Day for a seminar and discussion called Chianti Classico for a New Era. With fresh imagery and video from a recent trip to this area, Kevin covered the ups and downs of the region’s history, how the wines are made and what to expect from them, how to decode a Chianti Classico label and its categories, and how biodiversity is helping the area in the era of climate change.

The seminar also covered enjoying and aging these wines as well as a few travel tips for exploring the region.
