Tuscany Wine

To consider modern day Tuscan wine, one should give props to the Etruscans, who inhabited this central Italian region starting in the 6th century BC. Tuscany is a land of abundant sunshine, rolling green hills, spring water, a spectacular breezy coast and rich soils. If you’re going to set up a civilization, this is a pretty terrific place to do it. Especially if you have a bunch of gods that need worshipping with the heavy consumption of wine. 

 
But around the 4th century BC, the Etruscans left this beautiful landscape, for all intents and purposes absorbed into the Roman culture. Their civilization, the villages and agriculture they set up, was left to the elements and the vineyards dried up. Through the centuries, people returned to the region. But it spent a lot of time under dispute by various factions such as the Pisans, Sienese and Florentines. It was a dangerous place to live, what with all the hidden marauders and mosquito-ridden swamps, though many of the grapes planted Read more »

  • Nozzole Chianti Classico Riserva 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Something of a sharp nose with berry influence. Light berry/cherry on the tip of the tongue. Mid-strength tanninenough to get your attention, but not enough to scare those who are tannin-averse. A similar note on the acidenough to get your attention, but that is it. Medium-bodied. Pleasant, though not exceptional, aftertaste. For $15 I can... Read More

  • Montenidoli Colorino 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Love Elisabetta Fagiuoli's whites, this red is a bit on the tannic and rustic side. Hints of black licorice on the nose. The fruit is somewhat hidden and there's a lot of earth and leather on the tongue with grippy, drying tannins, medium plus acidity and a long finish. Read More

    Ripe raspberries and cherries on the nose showing pure and fresh with clumps of smooth clay and earth. Deep full and rich palate of creamy red raspberry and cherry, light licorice notes and a hint of herb on the finish with a touch of ripe acidity that balances the ripe fruit well.90 pts Read More

  • I would like to propose you the wines from Montecarlo, near Lucca in Tuscany. Maybe they are not so renowed but their quality is very good and are highly appreciated by lovers of good wine.

  • Your pricing on the Ruffino Oro is well below wholesale. It should retail around $33.00
