I owe much to the brilliantly run literacy charity Room to Read, including the chance to taste every vintage of Castello di Ama, one of the most respected Chianti Classico estates.
This year’s London wine gala, the major annual fundraiser of the British chapter of Room to Read, takes place tonight and this year has an Italian theme. So 215 guests in Drapers’ Hall in the City of London will be served:
Ferrari, Perlé Brut 2008 Trento
Antinori, Cervaro della Sala 2014 Umbria
Planeta 2015 Etna Bianco
Ornellaia 2013 Bolgheri
Castello di Ama, San Lorenzo Gran Selezione 2011 Chianti...
