Tuscany Selections

Italian Selections

ItalyWith this article on the wines of Tuscany, the International Wine Review continues its focus on Italian wines. Part I in this series evaluated selections from the Veneto and elsewhere. Italian wines are among the best in the world, both in terms of quality and price, and they match superbly with food. However, they are not always easily understood. They are mostly made from indigenous grapes, many of which are unfamiliar to the average consumer, and they come from the widely varying regions and climates of Italy, including the island Sicily. This series of articles, in addition to our recent in-depth reports on The Wines of Chianti Classico and The Wines of Southern Italy , should help inform consumers in their future purchases of Italian wines.

Part II Tuscany

Tuscany

Tuscany is the source of some of Italy’s most famous wines—Chianti, Chianti Classico, Brunello di Montalcino, Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, Vernaccia di San Gimignano, Vin Santo, and numerous Super Tuscans and IGTs (Indicazione Georgrafica Tipica). The charms of Tuscan wines have been celebrated for hundreds of years, as evidenced in the 980 line ode to Tuscan wine, Bacco in Toscano, written by Francesco Redi in 1685. While Sangiovese is the most prominent red grape of the region, many other indigenous (Colorino, Canaiolo, Malvasia Nera) and French varietals (Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc) are also grown, in addition to a number of white wine grapes (Trebbiano, Malvasia, and the famous Vernaccia). In recent years, Tuscan winemakers have begun practicing their talent in the Maremma and the Bolgheri, which is home to Sassacaia and Tignanello.

Banfi 2006 Centine Tuscany ($13) 88

The Centine is an attractive blend of 60% Sangiovese, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon and 20% Merlot. It boasts a medium ruby color with inviting aromas of earthy black cherry. Soft on the attack, it offers flavors of licorice, black fruit, and spice followed by chewy tannins and a firm finish.

Importer: Banfi

Barone Ricasoli 2007 Chianti del Barone Tuscany ($15) 87

A light to medium ruby red, Sangiovese-based blend aged 80% in stainless steel and 20% in oak. Aromas of red plum fruit with a slight herbal edge give way to fresh fruit on a light palate with good acidity. A good value wine for everyday drinking.

Importer: Remy USA

Boscarelli 2004 Vino Nobile di Montepulciano Tuscany ($49) 89

Brambly black fruit and dark loam notes erupt from this medium dark ruby Vino Nobile. These notes carry over to the round, full palate with the addition of pepper and tar. The finish on this blend of 80% Sangiovese (with additions of Merlot, Canaiolo and Cabernet) is gripping with the good acidity that makes Vino Nobile such a compelling food wine.

Importer: Empson USA Inc.

Boscarelli 2004 Vino Nobile di Montepulciano Nocio de Boscarelli Tuscany ($95) 90

The 2004 Vino Nobile di Montepulciano Nocio de Boscarelli blends Merlot with Sangiovese an...

Wine 'Doggy Bag' Regulations in Montana

The Liquor Control Commission tells us that a person may take an alcoholic beverage away from the licensed premises providing the license allows the sale of alcohol for on or off-premises consumption.  A restaurant holding a restaurant/beer license may not allow wine to be removed from the premises.  They suggest that a partially consumed bottle of wine be re-corked before it is removed.
