Select Tasting


With the sommelier

Wine & Me


I am a certified sommelier and social anthropologist living in Montalcino, Tuscany. I host 3 to 5 tasting events per week, where on average we taste up to 20 wines from various Brunello wineries. I love to search, taste and select.


My life was not always in wine.  

 After finishing my studies and starting my career in Paris, I worked for Humanitarian agencies and Government research programmes for 10 years in various countries around the world. Wine has always been my side passion that I have now been fortunate enough to turn into my profession.

15 years ago I moved to Tuscany, the wine heartland of Italy. I became a member of the AIS (Associazione Italiana Sommelier) and ONAV (Organizzazione Nazionale Assagiatori di Vino) the two most prestigious wine organizations in Italy.

I founded Select Tasting in order to share my passion for and knowledge of outstanding Tuscan wines, especially

the celebrated Brunello Di Montalcino.
