Vin Santo del Chianti d.o.c. & Cohiba: here is the pair of excellence protagonists of the next edition of the Habanos Festival 2016, at the start from February 29th to March 4th in Havana. The Consorzio Vino Chianti, already the official patron of the last edition of this important event that takes place every year in the Cuban capital, returns to work with the Festival this year, and does it in an unmissable opportunity for true cigar lovers: the fiftieth anniversary of the Cohiba, the best known in absolute brand and iconic among premium Cuban cigars.

The event will draw about three thousand workers between professionals and buyers related to the world of tobacco, wine and food, fashion and luxury, which will attend the event and participate in initiatives related to the presentation of Vin Santo del Chianti DOC, organized by the Consorzio Vino Chianti and Diadema spa (Exclusive importer of Habanos in Italy) and that will take place throughout the week of the event.

At the institutional stand of the Consortium you can taste every day as many as 60 of Chianti labels d.o.c.g. and Vin Santo d.o.c., produced by more than 30 of its associated producers. It will be followed by a tasting of Chianti Rufina d.o.c.g. 2014 Villa Travignoli, vintage wine combined with the first course of “Dinner del Medio” . And in the “Habanos Moment”, the cigar Cohiba Piramides Extra will be paired with three Vin Santo del Chianti d.o.c. selected for the occasion: Reserves 2002 Casa di Monte, Fattorie Parri Reserves 2004 and 2003 Castelvecchio. And as a final tribute to the special Chianti-Cuba alliance, about a thousand illustrious guests can taste the exclusive cigar all along the event, paired with the Vin Santo del Chianti d.o.c. (“Divinum” 2006 Sant’Appiano Farm).

Wine and cigars, or Chianti and Cohiba: the meeting of two icons, in the sign of taste.
