Tuscany, Italy

Tuscany is an opulent region producing contenders for the greatest wines in the world.  It is famous for the Super Tuscans, a group of wines produced using varieties of indigenous and international grapes and therefore falling outside the Appellation regulations to be granted DOC status.  These wines are made on the coastal areas of the region with a maritime influence from the sea.   Many of the Tuscan white wines are also produced here too.  


Inland with rising altitude, famous wines of Chianti, Chianti Classico, Burnello di Montalcino and Vino Nobile di Montepulciano are produced.  The wines are so varied in style from easy drinking and fruity, to heavy and age worthy it is an exciting region to explore.

IGT Toscana ‘Girolamo’ 2011, Tuscany, Italy

Rating - RobertParker 90 points

James Suckling 93 points

"Black Cherries, plums, smoke and liquorice emerge from an opulent, beautifully layered wine that never loses its sense of underlying structure. Sage, rosemary and liquorice are some of the nuances that develop in the glass. All of the elements are very much in symmetry. A rich, super-inviting finish makes it hard to put down the glass. Girolamo is one of the most distinctive Merlots in Tuscany."

Renieri

Rosso di Montalcino DOC 2013, Tuscany, Italy

Rating - James Suckling 90 points

“The 2012 Rosso di Montalcino delivers all the qualities you should expect from a food-friendly Rosso. This is a plump and easy-drinking red that ups the ante thanks to bright cherry nuances, blackberry and spicy background notes. It's a restrained, but not understated wine with balanced acidity and tight texture”. Monica Larner, February 2014.
