Tuscany

Tuscany

When wine writers discuss terroir they usually look to Burgundy or Bordeaux for examples, but Tuscany may produce some of the most convincing displays of terroir in action. Why does a Merlot or Cabernet grown in Tuscany taste like no other Merlot or Cabernet in the world? It simply tastes Tuscan—there’s a meaty, mouthwateringly savory quality to Tuscan reds that cannot be replicated in any other viticultural area.

For example, Tuscany’s most prestigious wine, Brunello di Montalcino, has this savory quality in spades. Meanwhile, some of the finest Super-Tuscans (made from international varieties such as Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and others) from districts such as Bolgheri or Sant’Antimo may have more weight and heft than Sangiovese, but the Tuscan terroir provides a common link. There are refreshing whites made here, such as Vermentino or Vernacchia di San Gimignano, but make no mistake—this is red wine country.

  7. Tolaini Al Passo

    2017 / 750 ml. | Item#54934

    JS9494 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Wednesday, April 28, 2021
    A beautiful, ripe wine, offering plums and chocolate, as well as tile and walnuts. It’s full and layered with beautiful fruit and caressing tannins. Rock on. Drink in 2022.
    VN9292 pts. - Vinous - Sep 2020
    The 2017 Al Passo is a blend of equal parts Sangiovese, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Open-knit and plaint, with soft curves, the 2017 offers tons of immediacy. Cedar, tobacco, dried herbs and macerated cherry all meld together in an inviting, mid-weight Tuscan red to drink over the next decade or so.
    RP9191 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 15th Apr 2021
    The Tolaini 2017 Al Passo is always an ambitious wine that takes the best of the grapes in its blend: Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Each give freshness, structure and textural fiber. Al Passo opens to dark berry fruit and plum, with spice, tobacco and tilled earth. This is a well-priced wine that promises lots of pairings, especially out of a Tuscan cookbook.
    SP9090 pts. - Wine Spectator - Jun 30, 2021

  8. Caparzo Brunello di Montalcino

    2016 / 750 ml. | Item#47542

    SP9696 pts. - Wine Spectator - Jun 30, 2021
    Ripe, sweet cherry and raspberry fruit are accented by floral, mineral and wild herbs in this alluring red. A backbone of dense, dusty tannins provides support, and the ripe fruit returns on the savory finish. Excellent length. Best from 2023 through 2043. 15,000 cases made, 8,500 cases imported.
    JS9494 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Wednesday, November 11, 2020
    Plum, ripe-berry and floral aromas with hints of sandalwood and fresh mushrooms. It’s full-bodied with firm, ripe tannins and a fresh, crushed-stone finish. A little timid now. Give it another two or three years. Try after 2023.
    VN9393 pts. - Vinous - Nov 2020
    The 2016 Brunello di Montalcino shows mineral-laced black cherries with earth tones and hints of tanned leather. It’s soft in texture with a polished display of ripe berries and savory spice, as zesty acids create a juicy expression while slow-mounting tannins collect upon the senses. This turns dry and structured toward the finale, yet with the balance for a long and steady evolution in the cellar. This is really very nice.
    JD9191 pts. - Jeb Dunnuck - 3/4/2021
    The 2016 Brunello spent 3 years in a combination of traditional large Slavonian and French oak casks. Fresh with piney herbaceousness, confected black raspberry, and dried violets, it is medium-bodied and easy-drinking with fine tannins with acidity that lifts off the palate. Notes of fresh citrus, dried flowers, and dusty earth are delicate on the palate. This is ready for fresh drinking now or over the next few years.

    SP9191 pts. - Wine Spectator - Oct 31, 2021

    VN9292 pts. - Vinous - Aug 2019
    The 2016 Primamateria, the estate’s Sangiovese/Merlot blend, is another exceptional wine in this range. Raspberry jam, spice, new leather, dried flowers and mocha lend striking aromatic nuance. The 2016 is sleek, ripe and exceptionally polished, not to mention flat out delicious.
    SP9090 pts. - Wine Spectator - Oct 31, 2019
    This is pure, but also velvety and vibrant, featuring cherry, black currant, tar, stony and iron notes. Firm and dense on the finish, with a juicy finish. Drink now through 2028. 3,400 cases made, 1,100 cases imported.

  13. Celestino Pecci Brunello di Montalcino

    2015 / 750 ml. | Item#53002

    JS9797 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Monday, December 21, 2020
    This is an extremely refined, focused young Brunello with subtle, enticing aromas of flowers and black cherries that follow through to a medium to full body, ultra-fine tannins and a finish that lasts for minutes. Best I have ever had from here. A young Brunello that already shows so much class now, but better in two or three years. Better after 2022 and beyond.
    WE9191 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 5/1/2020
    This offers aromas of ripe black-skinned berry, scorched earth and leather. The dense palate presents ripe black cherry, tobacco and star anise alongside firm chewy tannins. Drink 2022–2030.
    VN9090 pts. - Vinous - Apr 2020
    The 2015 Celestino Pecci Brunello di Montalcino shows the warmth of the vintage through its first wave of dark, ripe black cherry, yet balances it well with more time in the glass, adding savory herbs, stone dust and dried roses. On the palate, velvety textures usher in a mix of red berries, minerals and savory spice, supported by juicy acids, as pretty inner florals amass toward the close. The finish is long and surprisingly structured, as grippy tannins clench the senses, yet there’s plenty of primary fruit to maintain balance.

  14. Piancornello Brunello di Montalcino

    2015 / 750 ml. | Item#53001

    RP9595 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 15th Oct 2020
    Showing a robust and beautifully saturated appearance, the Piancornello 2015 Brunello di Montalcino offers that classic Brunello bouquet that introduces earthy elements of leather and potting soil with dark plummy fruit. Those sweet and savory sides are expertly folded into each other, and the rich, concentrated fruit of the vintage helps to smooth out those flavors, adding overall intensity along the way. This is a terrific expression that faithfully reflects the beauty of Brunello. It is a lovely wine.
    JS9595 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Sunday, September 20, 2020
    There’s a cascade of dried florals here, ranging from rose petals to lilacs; the glazed strawberries and cherries are equally intense. So much power and ripeness to the full-bodied palate, but there’s a savory, stony flavor and texture that permeates the whole package. Long on the finish. Drink from 2024.
    VN9292 pts. - Vinous - Apr 2020
    The nose is intense with spiced cherry, giving way to sweet herbal and floral tones, as hints of cedar and leather add further depth. On the palate, soft textures are contrasted by ripe red fruits, with vibrant acids adding lift, as sweet inner herbal and floral tones develop. The finish is medium in length and spicy, resonating on ripe fruit but also remaining fresh and energetic. This is already very easy to like and should be quite enjoyable over the medium term.

  15. Il Colle Brunello di Montalcino

    2016 / 750 ml. | Item#54182

    WE9797 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 5/1/2022
    Exuding class and finesse, this lovely red opens with compelling aromas of ripe woodland berries, violet, wild herbs and underbrush. Delicious and elegantly structured, the palate shows youthful tension that offsets juicy Morello cherry, crushed raspberry, grilled rosemary and baking spice. Taut, refined tannins and bright acidity provide impeccable balance. It’s already showing beautifully but promises great aging potential, too. Drink 2024–2036.
