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 »

  • Castello di Monsanto Chianti Classico Riserva 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Rich red fruit with balancing acid and enough tannin for interest. My best ever Chianti. Read More

    Wine review by RandyFisher


  • Guicciardini Strozzi Sodole 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Popped and poured. Wine had a sour taste. Then decanted for about 45 minutes and the wine took on a different dimension. Earthy and complex with a very faint hint of sweetness in the background. Very nice medium finish. Turned out to be one of the better Super Tuscans that I have tasted. Read More

  • La Lecciaia Rosso di Montalcino 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Plenty of red berry fruit, dirt, spice with that Montalcino zest at the end. Medium chewy tannins give added texture and the acidity gives this a nice pop and drive at the end. 89 points - drink now - Paul Read More

  • Banfi Le Rime Toscana 2016

    Snoothrank:

    Citrus, melon and lemongrass with a slight viscosity and decent acidity make this a fun wine to drink. 86 points - drink now - Paul Read More

  • Tommasi Poggio Al Tufo Toscana Rompicollo 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Some cherry and stone fruit on entry. Not a particularly complex wine, although, I have to admit it is a relatively easy wine to drink. I guess that even though nothing stands out as being great about this wine, nothing really detracts from it either. On the other hand, for less than $12, I cant be disappointed. Read More

  • Il Poggione Rosso di Montalcino 2014

    Snoothrank:

    A perfectly functional winenothing horrible about it, but, also, nothing memorable. Fairly light-bodied. Very light red fruit on the tip of the tongue. Quite acidic, which Im OK with, but might put off other tasters. Read More

    Blueberry and cherry fruit on the nose. Candied red fruit with a pleasant cherry and cranberry palate, rough tannins and red licorice on the finish. Read More

  • Santa Margherita Chianti Classico 2013

    Snoothrank:

    The color is a deep ruby red. The initial fruit forward aromas are plenty sweet. Notes such as cherry, strawberry, plum, a touch of violet, vanilla, cocoa, Sangiovese spiciness and earthy flint. Soft and smooth on the palate. The tannins are round, with a dry, warm, earthy/powdery finish. The finish is a soft, sweet cocoa finish. It's a very foo... Read More

  • Castello Banfi le Rime Toscana 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Typical of Banfi's efforts with this offering. Plenty of lemongrass, petrol, citrus fruit and a silky viscosity. Good minerality and acidity to this. 87 points - drink now - Paul 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.
