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.

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.

  • Ruffino Chianti Classico Riserva Ducale Oro Gran Selezione 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Shifting aromas of earth, mushroom and fresh red fruit, red currant and strawberry with good spice and a touch of leather. Good complexity and structure here. Cherry and strawberry fruit on the palate, a touch floral and coming with cinnamon and clove on the mid palate, some more earthy notes of black olive and chocolate on the finish. Read More
