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.

  • If you want to do Nebbiolo at a price, Ghemme (Cantalupo is my go to) is safe ... somewhat above Rome.  Tuscany is certainly not like Campania, Puglia, Calabria, Basilicata.  I'm pretty sure the Northern secessionists would be willing to take Tuscany along with them, but according to the Padania movement, it's not part of Padania.For statistic...

Just as Amarone may be a taste that doesn't appeal to everyone, same with Nebbiolo as it comes in Barbaresco or Barolo. Many people can find those wines overly acidic and unpleasant.

  • Fattoria Dei Barbi Brunello di Montalcino Riserva 2008


    Slight brick color in the glass. This is not bricking that I might associate with an older wine that had been exposed to oxygen. Thats just the color that it is. Fairly sedate wine that does not assault the tongue with fruit flavors. There is a hint of red berry fruit, but that is it. I do get something of a licorice hint. Very nice. Tart... Read More

  • 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.
