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 »

  • Vinea Familia Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2012

    Wine review by usbellavita


  • 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

  • Grattamacco Bolgheri Rosso 2015

    Snoothrank:

    Hand carried a bottle of 2015 back from Italy this Spring and finally opened it tonight. Worth every extra lug of the suitcase- rich dark cherry and plum on the nose with depth that did not disappoint in the mouth. Can't wait to go back to Italy to get more! Read More

  • Al,Canoehead (cellar tracker handle) was there!  He just completed his ... level 3 WSET this year in Tuscany (lucky guy!).  He actually said the Red Icon was the wine of the night.  Maybe we just had cab sav burnout! I gave you the 2010 (or 11?) Painted Rock Red Icon, which unfortunately (both 10 and 11) were not good vintages for BC generally... Read More
