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 »

  • As old and fabled of a pairing as bacon and eggs or Adam and Eve, Barbera and ... say in Bologna, Sicily, or Tuscany, you can be sure that they are often on the table together. This is when the magic happens.Now, just like with other grapes like Cabernet Sauvignon or Chardonnay, there are many ways to make the wine called Barbera. Some express... Read More

  • Viticcio Chianti Classico 2004

    gone through a case now, mostly with meat sauce linguini, a great pair for this. It's a heavy wine with very ripe fruit, my seller has it for US$14, a total steal at that price Read More

  • Gaja Magari Ca Marcanda Estate 2005

    Snoothrank:

    Insanely delicious for $35 tastes like a much more expensive wine, very well structured and a long ride from start to finish, it's barolo like at the end where some chocolate, toboacco and minerally things show up. A luscious ripe fruit nose, the long middle is very fruity Read More

  • Fugnano Vernaccia di San Gimignano 2005

    Snoothrank:

    Fro people who say they don't like white wines, it is because they have not tasted a truly exceptional and wonderfully refreshing white wine. A wine that could easily replace Chardonnay because of its softness, flavors, and exciting differences, this is destined to become a choice wine especially as people discover the excellence of whites. P... Read More

  • Le Macchiole Supertuscan Blend Bolgheri Rosso 2000

    Snoothrank:

    Garnet red, with ryby hues. Juicy and vibrant in the mouth, this 80% Sangiovese, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Merlot offers juicy notes of ripe blackberries and dried plums. Long and spicy on the finish, with notes of tobacco, tar, and mint going on for minutes. Extra fine yet tight tannins for this quintessential Super Tuscan. Read More
