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 »

    a nice Chianti, the blend is correct causing the mild flavor to flow gently across the palate with no unsettling aftertaste. Read More

  • Tommasi Viticoltori Poggio Al Tufo Rompicollo 2013


    Clear garnet color with some brownish hues around the rim of the glass....think the stems of the grape berry brown and with great bubbly goodness upon adding some air to the mix through swirling. The aromas are very much of rich, ripe dark berry, muted black peppery spice and slightly meaty. The flavors follow suit but become even longer and a... Read More

  • Avignonesi Rosso di Montepulciano 2014


    Strawberry and cranberry aromas with tart focused fruit and mineral earthiness on the nose with a pleasant floral character. Fresh, tart red fruit palate of raspberry, strawberry and cranberry with bright acidity and structured tannins, a creamy milk chocolate towards the finish with soft earth. Read More

  • I Veroni Chianti Rufina Riserva 2013


    Tart strawberry and cherry notes on the nose with some spice and rose petal aromas. This is deceptively tannic in the mouth, demonstrating puckering structure and high acidity with notes of cranberry and strawberry and a finish that's herbal and earthy with good salinity and minerality.

  • I would like to propose you the wines from Montecarlo, near Lucca in Tuscany. Maybe they are not so renowed but their quality is very good and are highly appreciated by lovers of good wine.
