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 »

  • La Lastra Vernaccia Vernaccia di San Gimignano 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Had this wine in San Gimignano last September and had trouble finding it here at home. I did find a great shop on-line and have been buying it since. It's my favorite white......crisp, light and refreshing. I drink it with anything but it's especially good with salads and fish. Read More

  • Montenidoli Vernaccia di San Gimignano Fiore 2012

    Snoothrank:

    This is just a fantastic Italian white. Elisabetta makes some fantastic wines and this is just another great example. The color has a bit of a golden hue and the nose carries a bit of floral notes. The best part is the taste of honeysuckle, honey, lemon curd with a creamy and rich texture, decent acidity and a long finish. There is a lot going o... Read More

  • Tua Rita Rosso Dei Notri Toscana 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Bright red berry fruits highlight this IGT blend. This plenty of anise, red cedar, a hint of tobacco with a zest note and medium tannins marry up to good acidity flowing to a good lengthy aftertaste. It's ready - drink now. Paul 90 points Read More

  • Tenuta Poggio Il Castellare Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Pian Bassolino 2007

    Snoothrank:

    Aroma notes of pansy flower box and fruits, plums, strawberries, cherries, incense and earthy tones lead an explosion of ripe fruit, tasty oak spices and expresso with a tad bit of chocolate thrown in. There are tannins, chewy but fine and well balanced acidity that delivers a long and satisfying aftertaste this last for another 5-8 years ea... 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.
