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 »

  • Giusti Zanza I & Toscana Perbruno 2005

    Snoothrank:

    A Tuscan 100% Syrah. Drank at 33 Wine Bar In Lafayette Square of St. Louis. Really elegant syrah with raisin and wet brook stones on the nose. Medicinal fruit, blackberry, peppery spices. A midweight Syrah produced from 25yr old vines. Nuanced and interesting. Drinking very well now but will enjoy revisiting in a few years. Best 2012-2018. Read More

  • Poggiotondo the Blend Toscana IGT 2004

    Snoothrank:

    Earthy nose with licorice and plum. Very dark, almost inky color. Earthy on the palate, not much fruit. Decent tannins. Seems to have a spell on the mid palate where you almost don't taste anything. Not a spectacular wine but I've had worse.....much, much worse. Even so, I say pass. Read More

  • Carpineto Dogajolo White 2010

    Snoothrank:

    A harbinger of a blend of flavors here - tropical fruit, butter and cream, and lots of yeast make for a mouthful of complex goodness. Nice sipping but round enough to stand up to meats and cheeses. Read More

  • Carpineto Dogajolo White 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Nice low apricot and pear fruit slowly fills the glass with a subtle leafy underlay. This is decidedly medium bodied and soft yet it has a certain richness to it. The flavors on the palate lean a bit more towards lime and grapefruit though they do retain a core of almost peachy orchard fruits. Very clean crisp and somewhat short finish. This is... Read More

  • Carpineto Dogajolo White 2010

    Snoothrank:

    This review is for the 2010 vintage (same label as 2009). Fresh slightly creamy nose with gut grass and mint, and notes of stone fruit and melon. The body is light, but packs a considerable mineral acidity in the middle, mild tropical fruit on the finish. Read More

  • La Massa Toscana IGT 2006

    Snoothrank:

    The nose showed cherries with undergrowth, earth and herbs. With time in the glass the bouquet blossomed with added layers of leather and Tuscan dust. On the palate it was balanced and velvety with ripe red berries and brisk acidity, which gave it excellent body contrasted by its mouth-watering qualities. A hint of structure still lingered on th...
