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.

  • Solaia Antinori Premier 2003

    Snoothrank:

    Di colore rosso rubino, al naso di grandissimo impatto con note fragranti di frutta rossa e spezie. Un vino di grande persistenza , dai tannini soffici ed elaborati. Un vino di grande struttura equilibrio. Un vino dal sapore e dall'aroma minerali, un vino aristocratico, semplicemente superlativo. 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.
