Press ReviewPress

It would be easy to get the impression from the average supermarket shelf that Tuscany produces only red wine, and only chianti at that. But this huge area – Italy's equivalent of Bordeaux – is much more varied, as I was reminded by a flying visit the other weekend. Alongside Bolgheri, the coastal region that is home to cabernet- and merlot-based "supertuscans" such as Argentiera, Ornellaia, Sassicaia and, farther south, Brunello di Montalcino, there are vast swaths of more modest reds simply identified by the word "Toscana". Some come from the same producers that make the most celebrated wines. Fattoria dei Barbi's Brusco dei Barbi, for example, is effectively a cut-price brunello at about a third of the price and ready to drink now. The fragrant, juicy 2010 (13.5% abv) is on offer at Great Western Wine...Ideal with grilled lamb.
