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 »

  • Fattoria Dei Barbi Brunello di Montalcino 2008


    Nice maroon color that might tilt towards brownish tinge. Kind of a musty nosedried fruit. Raisiny, dried fruit characteristic on the tongue that I normally get from Nebbiolos. Fairly full-bodied and quite round. Very mild tannin and very mild acid. Read More

  • I Balzini White Label Dai Colli Della Toscana Centrale IGT Rosso 1999


    Having let this wine breathe for a couple hours, it's a bright ruby, with some darker color toward the center, and surprising clarity given its age. The nose is quite pleasant, with some ripe berry, prune and cherry notes up front, than transition to some toasted oak and smoky notes. The taste is quite nice, with some ripe cherry and cola note...

  • Ruffino Case Sale Chianti Classico "Aziano" 2012


    The wine is a bright ruby color in the glass with great clarity and somewhat lighter body which is typical of Chianti. The nose exhibits notes of green herbs and tart cherries with light undertones of leather and tar. The taste is very fruit forward with notes of raspberries and plum with bright acidity that transitions to some tart cherry mid... Read More

    The wine is a lovely garnet hue in the glass with ruby along the edges, and great clarity. The nose is classic Chianti, with lovely aromas of blackberry, cherry and some floral aromas of violet and a hint of spice. The taste is quite nice, fruit forward with lots of cherry, plum and a bit of spice, maybe a bit of cumin. The flavors easily tra... Read More

  • Ruffino Classico Chianti Riserva Ducale Tan Label 2011


    The wine itself is a lovely garnet color in the glass with great clarity and a bit heavier appearance than the two previous wines we tasted. The nose has a definite fruity characteristic that borders on "jammy" with aromas of ripe berries and cherry compote along with some rustic earthy notes of oak and peat. The taste is very fruit forward, b... Read More

    Wine review by doublefantasy

  • Very happy to be talking wine with others who appreciate/love it. My husband and I are going to Tuscany next year, spending a week visiting estates in the Chianti Classico region. I'm a big fan of the Sangiovese grape and I'm eager to learn from others who have traveled to Italy and stopped by wineries, both large and small. Thank you! Read More
