Wine Region of the Month - Tuscany

Throughout February!

When it comes to wine production regions that have stood the test of time, few can compare to Tuscany, one of the most-loved parts of Italy by wine lovers worldwide. Exceptional quality is the hallmark for Tuscany’s legendary wines, often demanding budget-breaking prices, but we think its Tuscany’s affordably-priced gems, with an emphasis on value that capture the essence and beauty of the Tuscan culture.

2016 Castello ColleMassari Malacce Montecucco Vermentino DOC

2013 ColleMassari Montecucco Sangiovese Riserva Poggio Lombrone 
Tuscany, Italy
Beautifully polished and bright, the 2013 Montecucco Sangiovese Riserva Poggio Lombrone is a pure expression of Sangiovese from the wild and rustic hills of the Montecucco appellation along the Tuscan coast. This wine is fermented in open cone-shaped oak vats with gentle, manual punch-downs and longer maceration times. Fruit is sourced from 50-year-old vines planted in tufaceous clay and calcareous marl soils on a breezy perch located 300 meters above sea level. This is a beautiful creation with an impressive sense of cherry brightness and purity of fruit. 92 points Robert Parker

Sale price $69.99 per bottle, $839.88 per case
