Critical Acclaim

SP89 Wine Spectator Jun 15, 2017

"A broad red, with black cherry, plum, wild herb, tar and earth flavors, backed by solid tannins. This lingers with a finish of saline and tobacco notes. Drink now through 2020. 800 cases imported." (89 pts.)

WE86 Wine Enthusiast 3/1/2017

"The shy nose eventually reveals suggestions of red berry, aromatic herb and a whiff of game. The bright simple palate offers red cherry, clove and an earthy note alongside mellow tannins." (86 pts.)

Tuscany

There are few regions as picturesque as Italy's Tuscany. And there are few regions that produce finer wines, either. Tuscany is home to legendary wine regions Brunello di Montalcino and Chianti, among others, where the red wine grape Sangiovese is king. It's also home to "Super Tuscans," a category of Tuscan wines that don't officially fall within the Italian wine classification system.

Italy

Italy is famous for its powerful, sleek, and elegant reds wines from ancient growing areas with legendary names such as Chianti, Barolo, Barbaresco, Montepulciano. Italian white wines are also gaining popularity: Orvieto, Pinot Grigio, and Sauvignon are excellent examples of Italian white wines.

Wines of Italy are complex and flavorful, much like the culture that is their source and the cuisine that is their match.
