Ep. 1357 Alessandro Torcoli | On The Road Edition

On The Road Special Editions

Welcome to episode 1357, another episode of “On The Road Edition”, hosted by Stevie Kim. In this episode Stevie is in Cortina and is talking with Alessandro Torcoli

More about today’s guest:
To what extent Alessandro Torcoli made his passion for wine a profession or was it his profession, that of a journalist, that made him passionate about wine, we cannot know. Instead, it is certain that he is one of the greatest connoisseurs of wine tourism in Italy.
His curriculum is public and easily traceable on the web, therefore we will not retrace the stages of his brilliant career here. We at FisarMilano know and appreciate him not only for his professionalism but also for his great availability .
During the very sad period of the lockdown he kept us company for an evening leading us by the hand to discover some wines that he presented and described to us with loving passion . On this occasion we were also able to experience the more human side of his character: an affable and very courteous person like him, he then entertained himself to answer some questions that were posed to him, placing his many years of study at our disposal .
The firmness and certainty of his answers may have made one think of a certain arrogance, a bit like some people who consider themselves “arrived”. For him, however, this is not the case: he recently got back into the game by participating as a “student” in the courses organized by the Institute of Masters of Wine , which can only be accessed after having taken a very difficult exam, aimed at testing the deepest knowledge of the world wine.

And while he is taking part in this “course” he directs his magazine Civiltà del Bere which is based in Milan at the Enoluogo wine shop where he can also be met and consulted for some buying advice.
On 17 February 2022 he will be a guest again at FisarMilano: on this occasion he will present his new book, Vinology – Tasting course , of which we only know that it is an infographic manual (like the previous Vinology, a visual guide to d’ Italy and the world) to learn to taste and to identify the peculiarities of each vine through our senses.
