TUSCANY

Tuscany, along with Piedmont, is the foundation upon which Italy’s wine reputation has been built. In total, there are 29 wines with DOC status produced in the region. It is also home to 7 of Italy’s DOCG areas, and many premium non-classified wines.

Chianti accounts for a large part of the region with the most prestigious DOCG Chianti Classico wines coming from the beautiful central hills, which provide a tempering effect on the summertime heat, many vineyards are planted on the highest slopes. The principal grape variety is Sangiovese, alongside other indigenous and international varietals.

2015 Le Difese, Tenuta San Guido

Bottle 75cl £18.50

TASTING NOTES

Arguably the finest expression of Chianti Classico we’ve ever tasted from the estate. This is a ripe yet elegant vintage with an attractive, fleshy concentration and sweet-scented fruit. This depth is lifted by crunchy cherry acidity; tell-tale Sangiovese spice and a streak of grippy minerality add layers of complexity to what is a very complete wine. Drinking very well now...

This is a very attractive and aromatic wine with vibrant blackberry fruit characters mingled with crushed flowers, wild herbs and a bright balsamic note. The palate is elegant and silky textured with a lovely freshness and fine length. A wine which is delicious from release, it also offers incredible value. Anticipated maturity 2016 to 2020.

TASTING NOTES

Tua Rita’s unique “seaside Sangiovese” is an enchanting expression of the vineyard’s location, named after the beautiful pink marble (“the pearl of the wood”) on which it is grown.  Warm and elegant, the 2015 Perlato displays roses, lavender, sour cherry and hedgerow fruit. The velveteen tannins are balanced by a bright, refreshing acidity. There is a kiss of sweet, supple...

this area is huge with industrial cooperatives alongside tiny family farms and as such quality can vary substantially. To the south near the town of Siena is Montalcino, where again Sangiovese is key, though here it is a local strain, Brunello, or more officially Sangiovese Grosso, that produces Brunello di Montalcino and Rosso di Montalcino.

Historically Brunello needed considerable ageing, and the minimum age before release is still 4 years. However Brunello is now being produced that is delicious from release as well as having good potential for ageing – the best of both worlds and an essential development in the face of changing modern tastes.

Coastal Tuscany, particularly the area around the beautiful village of Bolgheri really hit the map in the 1970s as a new class of wines known as “Super Tuscans” emerged. These wines were made outside DOC/DOCG regulations, using international varieties, some were considered to be of outstanding quality and received high scores from the critics and commanded surprisingly high prices for the time.

The two most renowned Super Tuscans to this day are Sassicaia and Ornellaia, for which Armit are the exclusive UK agents! Bolgheri today is synonymous with winemaking of the highest order. Exceptional terroir along the coast complemented by the wonderful Mediterranean climate provide perfect conditions for vines not only in Bolgheri and the Maremma but down to Suvereto and beyond.
