Maurizio Broggi, DWS, FWS, is the Education Director for the Italian Wine Scholar (IWS) program. During an eight-day summer tour, he led a group of IWS educators through three of Italy’s northern wine producing regions, Trentino, Franciacorta and Lugana.
In this episode we interview WSG's own Maurizio Broggi who talks about the importance of “educating educators" and the significance of the regional wines of Trentino, Franciacorta and Lugana as well as their native grape varieties like Teroldego, Nosiola and Turbiana.
He also offers insights with respect to current research on indigenous grapes such as Erbamat and climate change in Franciacorta as well as details about studies on the identity of the Turbiana grape in Lugana.
