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 Read more »

  • La Pievaccia Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2005

    Snoothrank:

    Un vino balsamico, dall'intenso profumo di mora, colore rosso rubino, un vino che riesce a durare nel tempo con una notevole astringenza nel palato che però viene mitigato dell'affidamento in rovere. Abbiamo a che fare con un Sangiovese, un vino antico il cui nome deriva da "sanguis jovis", sangue di Giove. Il Brunello in particolare è ricavato... Read More

  • Col di Sasso Direct Italy Red Blend 2006

    Snoothrank:

    Very strange. I think there's something wrong with the bottle I purchased. It's very thin and had no aroma. It tastes somewhat like watered down port. Perhaps it has something to do with the screw top cap? Won't try again! Read More

  • Bibi Graetz Casamatta NV

    Snoothrank:

    I bought this wine by mistake the other day. I thought I was picking up the Casamatta 2011 Tosscan IGT, but when I unpacked at home, I saw that this Casamatta is a non-vintage "Rosso," which I would interpret to mean "red wine." It has a "woody/viney" nose, and on the palate it has noticeably less fruit and acid as the vintage Toscana IGT. Al... Read More

  • Bibi Graetz "Casamatta" Toscana Rosso 2011

    Snoothrank:

    Oh wow a low-dollar winner winner. Very luscious on the tongue. Then you get some nice berry and even some stone fruit flavors. Then you get the Tuscan acid that I love so much. Interestingly enough, I don't see this a a spaghetti-with-red-sauce accompaniment. I would go with cheeses with sliced apples or pears. US$7.97 at Costco in Chino ... Read More

  • Bibi Graetz "Casamatta" Toscana Rosso 2011

    Snoothrank:

    100% Sangiovese A touch reduced on the nose but showing a fine array of dark fruits, wild herbs with a medicinal touch, dried flowers, red soil notes and fine dusky Tuscan spice notes with a lovely suggestion of white mushroom adding freshness. Rch and almost chewy on entry, theres a nice base of tannin and acid here supporting the rich fruit bu... Read More
