“Not even the beasts who abound/ In the wilds between Cecina and Corneto, and hate tilled land, would call this their kind of ground.” This is what 13th century poet Dante Alighieri wrote about the old days of the Maremma of Tuscany. What was once swampland infested with both vermin and banditry is now considered the coast d’oro of Italy. Say what you will about Benito Mussolini, it was under his fascist government in the 1920s that Tuscany was rebuilt and became a prime vacation spot. Now opulent vineyards cover the landscape surrounding this romantic seaside destination. From Purgatorio evolved Paradiso
 
Maremma wines are the “Super Tuscans” that emerged from this renewal. The movement began in the early 1940s, when Marchese Mario Incisa della Rocchetta moved to Bolgheri. In the interest of making wines for private consumption, he imported Cabernet Sauvignon vines from Bordeaux’s Chateau Lafitte and established a little vineyard called Read more »

  • Querciabella Maremma Toscana Mongrana 2009

    Snoothrank:

    AUD$25 from Prince Wine Store. A 50/25/25 blend of Sangiovese, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. A small proportion of the wine is aged in barriques for ten months and this gives some element of tannin structure to this young fruity wine. Intense ruby colour, youthful aromas of sweet concentrated blackcurrants, hints of cloves and finely ground bla... Read More

  • Le Cupole Rosso Toscana DOCG 2007

    Snoothrank:

    The nose showed black cherries, cinnamon, mint and dark chocolate with a distinct earthy component. On the palate, it was full and velvety with ample weight balanced by zesty acidity. Flavors of rich black cherry, prunes, dark chocolate and tobacco leaf filled out the palate. The finish was long and fresh. This wine truly wowed me as its luxurio... Read More

  • Rocca di Frassinello Maremma Toscana 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Not very flavorful. Had it at a Tuscany tasting and it was bland. It might be that I do not like the Tuscany style. It taste like it has been watered down. Dry. Read More
