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 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

  • Brunello di Montalcino Renieri 94js 2006

    Snoothrank:

    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

  • Piccini Memoro Italia Vino Rosso d'Italia NV

    Snoothrank:

    Produce Station, Ann Arbor, 4/2017. A strange but lovely red blend. It was consumed at Thanksgiving dinner, mostly if not exclusively be me. It definitely got better the longer it was in my glass. Great soft tannins with a long finish. Took 10 hours to empty the bottle. Read More

  • Ruffino Modus Toscana 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Rich and full aromas of dark chocolate, baking spice and vanilla bean with ripe blackberry and black cherry notes that are clear and inviting. A bounce of fruit on the palate, mostly black cherry and concentrated black currant, this fills in nicely towards the mid palate, building structurally towards a tannic crescendo before a wave of acidity ...

Musty/Musky Fruit, Dry, Tannic and Medium Acidity, Medium Weight in the Mouth.This review seems fairly accurate to me - 'The Riserva Ducale is an intense ruby red color. This complex wine is characterized by sweet cherry and red berry fruit notes ... Read More
