Rank #19: Ep. 196 --ITALIAN-- Attilio Scienza (VIA Chief Scientist) sul Sangiovese

Podcast cover
Read more
In this educational podcast recorded in Italian, Monty Waldin meets Attilio Scienza, vine genetics scholar and Chief Scientist of the Vinitaly International Academy. Scienza’s most recent book La Stirpe del Vino (Sperling & Kupfer, 2018) explores the genetic history of an iconic grape variety. In this interview, Scienza and Monty discuss the genetic origins of Sangiovese, its genetic relationships with Mantonico, Nerello Mascalese, Foglia Tonda and other Southern grape varieties. Scienza redefines the notion of grape indigeneity by stating that a grape is native to the place where it finds its best expression, rather than to the place where it originates. Thus, despite its Southern Italian origins and progeny, Sangiovese has found its best expression in Tuscany and Emilia-Romagna. Scienza talks about Sangiovese’s soils and wine-making styles and introduces key issues related to the main Sangiovese territories and denominations: Morellino di Scansano, Brunello, Chianti, and the Sangiovese in Emilia-Romagna. This podcast will give you an overview of the importance of Sangiovese to the Italian wine tradition and cannot be missed if you are studying wine! [A transcript of this interview is available on www.italianwinepodcast.com. A recorded audio translation into English of this interview is available in the next episode. An English-language transcript can also be found on the Italian Wine Podcast official website]. --- This episode is part of the Native Grape Odyssey sponsored series.

Monty’s personality is fantastic. Funny, very knowledgeable. He’s very witty with the all winemakers or owners of the vineyard that makes the interview so engaging. This is fantastic listen! If you love wine and like a little humor on a dry topic ;) you will absolutely love this, especially if you love Italian wine!

Great, great wine podcast
