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 »

Tuscany on Snooth

  • Poggio Bonelli Poggiassai Toscana 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Brooding, earthy and hot aromas with bramble fruit and black cherry notes and a perfumed floral character. Smooth and fruity on entry, this turns dark and earthy on the mid palate with dusty savory notes of cinnamon and nutmeg spice, gripping tannin and a finish of concentrated blueberry and black currant.

  • Tunuta Buon Tempo Brunello di Montalcino 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Nice wine. Everything in moderation--fruit, oak, tannin, acid. Nothing dominates and nothing competes--so, I would say it's in balance. On the other hand it just doesn't seem like an ethereal wine experience. Read More

  • Rosso di Montalcino Casanova di Neri 2008

    Snoothrank:

    I bought this bottle of wine from the website ... the town of Brunello in Tuscany [the same area as for the Brunello di Montalcino but only needing 6 months as opposed to 2 years in oak]. I served my bottle at a dinner party I hosted at the weekend as the main course was an Italian pasta dish. It is a dark and full-bodied wine with some fairly ... Read More

    Tropical banana and mango aromas with light floral notes and dried brown rice with some green apple - quite complex. Good acidity with green apple, white grape and peach notes, cooked flower petal and creamy melon towards the finish of white pepper and vanilla. 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.
