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.

TASTING NOTES

Guidalberto, the second wine of Sassicaia, reflects the style and elegance of the first wine without the need for extensive ageing. A blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Merlot, the aromas of the 2011 are complex and persistent with layers of dark cherry fruits intermingled with herbs and spices. The palate is supple and refined with sweet, ripe dark...

The grapes for the Brunello are sourced from a vineyard to the northeast of Montalcino and from a selection of Rennina and Sugarille vineyards surrounding the church of Pieve Santa Restituta. Impressively rich and smooth textured, the 2010 is one of the finest vintages made. An exuberant bouquet of wild red berries mingles with aromas of dark chocolate and delicate...

The production of Tua Rita’s Syrah is minute; just 2500 bottles were made in 2012. Unsurprisingly, this is an exceptional wine that displays a wonderful, silky texture and a multifaceted character. An effortless charm distinguishes this Syrah, revealing beautifully pure notes of violet, red cherry, kirsch and soft, warming vanilla spice. The fruit is intensely compelling, with a joyful, viscerally...

TASTING NOTES

The 2010's somewhat reserved nose showed real oyster shell minerality underneath rich fruit, liquorice and tar. The medium bodied, elegant palate is structured and refined, textured and had great length. Another wine which will take 15 years to show its full colours.

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.
