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.

  • Tenuta di Arceno Chianti Classico Riserva 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Savory, light barnyard notes with rich mineral earth and fresh cherry fruit on the nose.

    Intriguing smokiness and rustic earth with savory black pepper spice and a fragrant grilled meat note - fruit notes of cherry are here on the nose too, but swept to the side. Much more fruit forward on the palate, this is brooding and smoky with tart cherry and cranberry fruit, black pepper and a finish of bramble fruit, oak and leather. Loads o... Read More
