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 Melacce Montecucco Vermentino DOC
Tuscany, Italy
“Intense notes of herbs and wildflowers open the aromatic description of this wine, and then gives way to deeper hints of spice and sea and closes with notes of almond. Enters the mouth fresh and sweet, with a pleasant lively acidity and a fragrant varietal flavor.” 90 Points Wine Spectator

2016 Tua Rita Rosso dei Notri Toscana IGT
Tuscany, Italy
50% Sangiovese, 50% Merlot

“This is extremely bright and energetic with plenty of dried cherry and chocolate character. Hints of hazelnuts. Full body, yet silky and super refined. Wonderful depth and length. Excellent. Mostly sangiovese with some syrah, cabernet and merlot. Drink or hold. Made from organic grapes.” 93 Points, James Suckling
“This is a fabulous blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah available at an irresistible price point. The 2016 Rosso dei Notri is just plain terrific on all levels. The aromas are bright and intense, and there is good complexity here as well. I just love it. The finish shows chocolate and toasted espresso bean. Drink this wine now—just because it is that good.” 92 Points, The Wine Advocate
