Azienda Agricola Fontodi

Flaccianello della Pieve Colli Toscana Centrale Sangiovese 2019

Gorgeous color of deep purple, without variation, earthy nose of mushroom-loam, grilled duck breast, black cherry both dried and ripe, crushed violets, brown sugar and brown bread. Round and supple mouthfeel of red cherry and bing cherry, shows ample cedar and cigar notes, oak and tart raspberry, cracked black pepper, rose petal and finally winds into a smoky graphite point that will undoubtedly blossom over the next decade.

Sasso al Poggio Toscana Super Tuscan Blend 2009

#qprsuperstar A veritable Tuscan treasure with a complex palette of ripe black cherry and licorice. The tannins are smooth and elegant but they let you know they're present in spades. This is currently the house wine. — 8 years ago

Thats it. I'm going IGT next trip to the store.


@Scott Petrus You absolutely have to. Otherwise it's like those final few reps: if you don't do them, you're only cheating yourself. #igt

Giovanna Tantini

Ettore Veronese IGT Corvina Blend 2010

Age has turned this 2010 magnum coffee-chocolate brick brown, but if memory serves this is an appassimento, Amarone-esque wine. It shows raisin and plum behind grill notes and black tobacco, fig and date. Tart dried cherry palate echoes tobacco, espresso and offers a cassis note. Earthy and bold. This wine exudes muscle, but does not lean on a Jammy-ness or blowsy-ness to deliver it. Really different, and singular.

Leggermente Appassito Toscana Red Blend 2016

Alluring #tuscan #igt - passing over semi-dried grapes brings a rich whiff of wild cherry and cassis, nicely balanced, dash of spice; thick but pleasant tannins and a sweeter style. This wine is superb with creamy pasta. — 5 years ago

Tenuta Monteti

Caburnio Toscana Alicante Bouschet Blend 2010

Derek Cohen

All the lavender/mocha/black cherry/smoke of a solid LB #bordeaux plus the black pepper of #alicante, plus the lip smacking med-short finish of a Tuscan wine. Awesome, I'm really happy with it. Get it instead of bordeaux at the same price ($17ish US). Seriously. #igt #toscana #valuewine — 8 years ago

Tenuta San Guido

Guidalberto Toscana Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot 2006

Dark rich red fruit, stiff backbone to it, med acidity pairs well with food. Could give it more time #igt #sanguido — 8 years ago
