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 »

  • Poggiotondo the Blend Toscana IGT 2004


    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


    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


    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


    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


    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...

  • Fonterutoli Siepi 1995


    this is a wine for Fonterutoli buffs, a pioneer wine as I call it. As its name suggests inky. its not the standard chianti by any means but a blend. I walked on the Mazzei Fonterutoli lands each morning when I lived in the area and came to know its chalky vineyards well. This is a wine with staying power. vegetal yes, with smokiness a little sp... Read More

  • San Giusto a Rentennano Trebbiano-Malvasia Blend Vin Santo del Chianti 1999


    Lovely notes of cut plum, cherry and strawberry are accented by spicy, floral, herbal nuances. This is fresh, intense, complex and lively, with a fine tension between the sweet red fruit and touch of vanilla. Intense and penetrating. Plenty of fruit here, black cherry and bright at that, with big, juicy acids all backed up by well judged oak no... Read More

  • San Giusto a Rentennano Trebbiano-Malvasia Blend Vin Santo del Chianti 1998


    Pretty oaky on the nose, rubbery, leathery, though with lovely notes of coriander, plum and herb. Turns bretty fairly quickly though with underlying notes of incense, spicy wood, leather and coffee. Theres also a slight musty note which might be a touch of TCA but the poopy bretty covers it well. Soft, rich fruit on entry lends this a slightly ... Read More
