Giuggiolo Toscana Rosso 2011 Product #28153 (In Stock)
Giuggiolo Toscana Rosso 2011 Giuggiolo Toscana Rosso 2011

Here is my actual tasting note from the first time I tried this:  “This is just stupid delicious.”  A few more details – this is 100% Sangiovese made in staeinless steel that opens with fresh and lovely aromas of violets, purple fruits and crushed cherries.  In the mouth it’s juicy and ripe with loads of pretty fruit and a dark, earthy, streak.  Bright and clean through the end with a delicious note of coffee and cocoa dust emerging at the end.  Drink it with a little chill with pizza and pasta or warmer with anything off the grill.  Like I said:  Stupid delicious.

Pieve Vecchia Sangiovese Chorum Montecucco 2010 Product #27327 (In Stock)
Pieve Vecchia Sangiovese Chorum Montecucco 2010 Pieve Vecchia Sangiovese Chorum Montecucco 2010

This Sangiovese from the fairly new Tuscan DOC of Montecucco waaay over-delivers for it's modest price. Lush aromas of dark cherry fruit and leather carry through to the sexy palate, which bursts with tangy ripe fruit dusted with fresh herb. There's lots of richness here, but also great energy from beginning to end where a hit of bitter chocolate and herb linger nicely.  A whole lot of wine for the money.

Poggio Alloro Vernaccia Di San Gimignano 2012 Product #28318 (In Stock)
Poggio Alloro Vernaccia Di San Gimignano 2012 Poggio Alloro Vernaccia Di San Gimignano 2012

Although Tuscany isn't known for its whites, this delicious, great-value Vernaccia is proof that maybe they should be!  This refreshing summer sipper beguiles with aromas of white flowers, chammomile and a little fresh hay.  Its fresh acidity and flavors of Meyer lemon and crunchy honeycrisp apple are presreved by stainless-steel fermentation.  Great with appetizers out on the porch!

Brunetti Sangiovese Toscana 2011 Product #28114 (In Stock)
Brunetti Sangiovese Toscana 2011 Brunetti Sangiovese Toscana 2011

There's a LOT of wine in the bottle for the money here.  Hand harvested, perfectly ripe, Tuscan Sangiovese with time in barrel is normally at least twice this price.  Aromas of dark black cherry, balsamic, leather and spice lead to a lush mouthful of black cherry and kirsch flavors with hints of licorice, bitter chocolate and spice.  Plenty of acidity and tannin for balance and food-friendliness and a lingering finish of sweet cherry fruit and spice make this a winner.

Genius Loci Sangiovese 2005 Product #27478 (In Stock)
Genius Loci Sangiovese 2005 Genius Loci Sangiovese 2005

Dave McIntyre recommends this elegant, mature Sangiovese, and so do we!

"This is very Old World in style: earthy, with sour cherry and cocoa notes typical of a sangiovese that picks up balsamic notes from aging in large casks. It reminds me of a Brunello, at a fraction of the price, and shows how well a “simple” Tuscan sangiovese can age. We don’t have to worry about cellaring it; that’s already been done for us. Alcohol content: 13 percent."  <b>**1/2 The Washington  Post</b>

"The 2005 Sangiovese Genius Loci is remarkably elegant and polished; qualities that were hard to come by in this challenging vintage. The plush, dark red fruit coats the palate all the way through to the long, refined finish. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2015." Wine Advocate 90 points

This wine is made in the traditional manner, by aging for 3 years in small chestnut barrels in the eaves of the home of the winemaker. It offers flavors of baking spices, maple syrup, caramel and toffee. It is slightly sweet and is often served with biscotti as a simple dessert. And, with nearly 9 years of aging, it's drinking just perfectly right now!
