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 »

  • Tenuta Dellornellaia "Ornellaia" Italian Super Tuscans 2005


    50% merlot, 35% cabernet sauvignon, 10% cabernet franc and 5% petit verdot. Lovely, vibrant aromas of ripe-off-the-vine blackberry and black raspberry with nuamnces of cedar box and sweet tobacco. Full, elegant entry that reiterates the berry fruit and is joined by delicate streams of plum and black chery. A velvety sort of muscularity gives it ... Read More

  • Montepeloso Nardo 2004


    The "Nardo" from Montepeloso defines the basic premise that blends create a greater whole than just the sum of the parts. "Nardo", in Tuscan dialect, means "lavender." This wine is the standard for the Montepeloso stable and is a blend of approximately 70% Sangiovese, 20% Montepulciano and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon. It is a blend of traditional Tos... Read More

  • Agostina Pieri Rosso di Montalcino 2005


    Dark garnet hue. Lovely, inviting aromatics that flirt with plum, cherry and mulberry delicately accented with a cedar/sweet tobacco spice; has a floaty high-note of blood orange. Silky, juicy freshness of black plum and bing cherry that is straightforward and no-nonsense with complementary elegant tannins. Perfect, supportive acid with underpin... Read More

  • Marchesi de Frescobaldi Mormoreto Toscana IGT 2004


    An extraordinary wine - solid and grand with its black purple opaqueness in the glass. An abashed nose of fresh plum tart with candied violets, black pepper, black licorice and rich plum/cherry confit. Resolute grip and a dense core are linked by a vibrant acidity, while the side notes are ones of tobacco and cedar. Chewy, thick and tight-knit a... Read More
