Tuscany

tuscany.jpgBy Gareth Williams CC2

Tuscany is home to awe-inspiring medieval towns, world-class art museums, and - most importantly for our purposes - the Sangiovese grape. Sangiovese is king in Central Italy, an it sees its highest expression in Tuscan regions such as Chianti, Vino Nobile di Montepulciano and Brunello di Montalcino.

Tenuta dell'Ornellaia 2012/2013 Ornellaia 750ml

$214.99

Critical Acclaim: The 2012 Bolgheri Superiore Ornellaia is very similar to the 2011 Ornellaia that precedes it. These were both hot vintages, but 2012 saw the heat towards the end of the growing season. In fact the harvest in 2012 came two weeks earlier...

Il Carnasciale 2012 Il Caberlot Toscana IGT 1.5L

The flagship 2012 Il Caberlot is all class. Rose petal, sweet red plum, flowers of all kinds, mint and herbs open up first in the bouquet. Like so many wines in this vintage, the 2012 is a bit light on the palate, with good depth, but less of the...
