Tuscany is a predominantly hilly region with vineyard elevations rising up to 550 meters above sea level. About a quarter of the landscape is mountainous and a scant 8 percent is officially classified as flat. Approximately 57,942 hectares of the region's nearly 23,000 square kilometers is under vine. The main wine-growing areas of Tuscany include: Chianti, Montalcino, Montepulciano, The Tuscan coast Sangiovese grapes thrive in the interior hillside vineyards in the Chianti zone that runs between Florence and Siena, as well as in the Montalcino and Montepulciano areas, where its best expressions evolve. Cabernet Sauvignon flourishes in the warmer areas along the Tuscan coast. Soils in Tuscany range from soft and crumbly, marl-like clay-limestone and dense sandstone in the Apennine foothills to sandy clay around San Gimignano and gravelly clay and sandy soils in the Bolgheri and Maremma areas. Tuscany's climate is Mediterranean with dry, hot summers; warm springs; and mild, rainy autumns and winters. Variations in altitude, exposition, and diurnal temperatures in the foothills contribute to climatic conditions that help balance the sugar, acidity, and aromatics in the grapes, primarily Sangiovese, planted there. Coastal areas like Bolgheri and Val di Cornia tend to be more temperate. source: SevenFifty Daily
Ratings & Reviews
Brunello di Montalcino
Lots of dried black fruits followed by potpourri, old leather, dried meats, and balsamic with underlying roasted coffee beans and cedar. Medium-bodied, refreshing acidity with powdery tannins that have melted into the wine with age. Savory finish. Drink now.
Brunello di Montalcino
Some nutmeg, dried flowers and a hint of soy-sauce savoriness seeped into the cranberry fruit and wet leaves. The tight, medium-bodied palate is charged with dusty, seamless tannins. Juicy, mature and nicely woven. Drink or hold.
