Italian wine classes starting


     Readers often ask where they can get started learning about wine. Here’s a good place. Wine educator/salesperson Julie Mushett is starting a series of classes on Italian wine at 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Fri., Dec. 5 at Gulf Liquors and Fine Wine, 1681 Alton Rd., Miami Beach

     She’ll talk about wine labels, wine styles, grape varietals, food pairings and prices.

     You’ll sip wines from various parts of Italy to compare and contrast, including the 2007 Sant’Elena “Klodic” Pinot Grigio from Friuili; the 2004 Pelissero “Piani” Barbera d’Alba; 2002 Valdicava Rosso di Montalcino from Tuscany; 2001 Fontodi “Cru Sorbo” Chianti Classico Riserva from Tuscany; 1997 Sant’ Elena “Tato” Cabernet/Merlot from Friuli and 2000 Firriato Camelot Cabernet/Merlot from Sicily.

     At the class, she will discuss timing and topics for further classes about Italian wine. Price is $30 per person including wines and written materials.
