I wavered a bit when thinking of including Sangiovese here. Don’t get me wrong I do love Sangiovese, but rarely do I spend this sort of money for them. Rarely of course being the operative word here. It does happen, reluctantly if I must admit, because these wines were much less expensive just a few short years ago.
I really do feel that if you’re going to build a world class cellar you owe it to yourself to include Sangiovese-based wines, by that I do mean wines from Tuscany. To be honest, they are the only wines I can think of at this price point and with this sort of ageing potential.
Great recent vintages in Tuscany to look out for include 2006, 2004, 2001 and 1999.
