Where It's From

Region / Tuscany

View more wines from 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.

Country / Italy

View more wines from 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.

A rich, harmonious red, displaying cherry, raspberry, iron, leather and earth aromas and flavors, with a hint of caraway. Sleek and succulent, shows a well-integrated structure and a flight-to-Mars-and-back finish. Best from 2024 through 2046. 600 cases made, 300 cases imported. (Bruce Sanderson)

The 2015 Carpineto Brunello di Montalcino Riserva mixes rich plum sauce and brown spice with lifting notes of wild herbs and white smoke. There’s an earthy, flowery undergrowth component that comes forward with time and really completes the expression. It’s deeply textural with a salty, savory persona, as flavors of cherry sauce and sage give way to baker’s chocolate and hints of tobacco. The finish is structured yet maintains balance, coming across as youthfully tannic but also clean and fresh. There’s a bit of a rustic feel here, yet it only serves to further accentuate the experience.

Cherry, berry, mineral and tobacco flavors hold court in this well-defined red. Borders on racy, courtesy of the vivid acidity, with well-mannered tannins running underneath. Shows terrific balance and complexity, featuring a long, savory aftertaste. Best from 2022 through 2039. 200 cases imported. (Bruce Sanderson)

Aromas of grilled herb, graphite and wild berry take center stage along with whiffs of rose and exotic spice. On the full-bodied polished palate, fine-grained tannins lithely frame red cherry, pomegranate, coffee bean and orange zest while fresh acidity keeps it bright. Drink 2022–2027.

Blood and iron mark the aromas of this powerful red, with ripe flavors of plum, black cherry and fruitcake. Very long, fresh and balanced, with the dense, dusty tannins softening and integrating with a few hours aeration. Best from 2025 through 2047. 1,250 cases made, 325 cases imported.

The 2015 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva struts its old-school stylings with a beguiling display of musky cherry and strawberry offset by damp earth tones, hints of cedar and mint. It’s unbelievably soft and silky in texture, ushering in ripe red berry fruits laced in saline-minerals and savory spice, with building inner florals toward the close. Formidable structure awaits on the finish, yet the 2015 Riserva manages to maintain freshness, coming across as both structured for the long haul but also with enough primary appeal to warrant checking in on today. It’s gorgeous. Tasted over the course of two days with consistent results.

Good full red. Ripe red cherry, sweet molasses, herbs and candied violet on the deep nose and palate. Fresh and juicy, but with remarkable density and concentration of fruit, featuring slowly rising tannins on the long and complex finish. Needs time.

Top notes of berry and dark flowers are underscored by earth, stone and tobacco flavors in this red, which is vibrant and elegant despite the dense structure, yet it’s the vibrant acidity that defines this overall. Shows terrific length. Best from 2022 through 2036. 2,000 cases made, 800 cases imported.

This is a good example of a Gran Selezione where the fruit is the main attraction as opposed to the wood. It falls into red territory, which includes dried red plums, cranberries, dried nutmeg and rose petals. Full-bodied and rather Burgundian, if the comparison is permitted. Fine, velvety tannins, zesty acidity and a long, very structured finish. Drink now or hold.
