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 »

  • Eric Banti "Carato" Toscana IGT 2012


    Wonderful blend. After sitting for awhile it has married completely to a smooth, effortless wine to drink (I like those.) . A combination of red and dark berry fruit overtones combine with Tuscany dust and minerality, mellow tannins and acidity creating a juicy aftertaste. A good red meat sauce and pasta food wine. Drink now. Paul 88 points Read More

  • La Velona Rosso di Montalcino 2011


    A rather mellow RdM from the start. Blackberries, plum, spice, Montalcino dirt and a sprig of zest lead to the palate which sees the same with additional herbal notes, medium tannins and good acidity. Drink now - Paul 88 points Read More

  • La Pievaccia Brunello di Montalcino DOCG 2005


    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


    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


    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
