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 »

    Wine review by Matthew Smyth

  • I may be the only one harping on the Italian Agricultural Ministry's decision ... to sell as Sangiovese from Tuscany you know who I am talking to. Give us clean and honest wines - show me the Dolcetto and the Asprinio, the Grillo and the Teroldego. This is an opportunity to raise awareness of lesser known growing regions, so don't blow it on ... Read More

  • Pieve Santa Restituta Promis Toscana IGT 1999


    Very dry, oaky, woodsy, light silax notes. A very drying, tannic wine,even still after almost 10 years. Its well aged and the fruit has died down, but still powerful. Personally, although it was excellent it was a bit too woodsy and drying for me. Any fruit? possibly some stewed and baked red fruits, but hard to detect under the wood. Read More

  • Tenimenti Angelini Toscana Rosso Tuttobene 2004


    An excellent choice if you're eating Italian food! I don't particularly care to drink Chianti on its own, as I think it needs food. I picked this up for around $10, so was really an excellent bargain. Nice and dry, with medium tannin, it was perfect for our penne arrabiata, and braciole! Would definitely buy again. Read More
