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 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

  • Ricasoli Brunello di Montalcino Torre Della Trappola 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Dark, brooding and smoky, this delivers loads of bright red fruit with a savory and earthy edge. In the mouth this has a bright sweet oak spice, ripe red cherry and strawberry fruit, zesty spice and fresh acidity, shifting towards blueberry and chocolate. Approachable and easy drinking.

  • Fattoria Scopone Brunello di Montalcino l'Olivare 2009

    Snoothrank:

    The wine is a nice deep ruby red color in the glass, perhaps a little darker than I was expecting. The nose presents aromas of ripe black fruit, oak and baking spice, with a hint of smoke. The taste is interestng, as it starts out with a bit of cherry cola, mocha and dark chocolate, that transition to a bit of anise and dried herbs. The tanni... Read More

    The wine is a beautiful purple garnet in the glass, with just the faintest hint ... be back to late summer in Tuscany, with a bright rush of ripe plum and currant up front, that transitions nicely to some notes of dried herbs and just a hint of mint midpalate. The finish is wonderful, with elegantly structured tannins that provide for a wonder... Read More
