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.

Tuscany on Snooth

  • Grattamacco Bolgheri Rosso 2015

    Snoothrank:

    Hand carried a bottle of 2015 back from Italy this Spring and finally opened it tonight. Worth every extra lug of the suitcase- rich dark cherry and plum on the nose with depth that did not disappoint in the mouth. Can't wait to go back to Italy to get more! Read More

  • Podere Casisano Rosso di Montalcino 2015

    Snoothrank:

    Fungal, earthy and mineral on the nose with cherry fruit and a pleasantly savory chicken coop note. Deep and rich on the palate, good fresh fruit and excellent balance - this delivers spice, cherry and red currant fruit, smooth supple tannins and a black pepper and floral under-note adding complexity and depth.

  • Poggio Bonelli Tramonto d'Oca 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Intoxicating fresh earth and savory herb aromas hide sun drenched black currant and black cherry fruit. Creamy dark chocolate and dark black cherry flavors on the palate with gripping tannins and a full rich palate of oak spice, vanilla bean and savory olive Notes. The tannins continue through to the spiced herbal finish where they continue to g... Read More
