12 Bottles of Classic Tuscany Red Wine Shipped to Your Home

Enjoy a unique selection of classic Tuscany red wines, chosen by our sommelier team.  Labels and vintages hard to find in the US, with high critic scores. You'll receive descriptive notes for each wine along with a video presentation and guided tasting with our sommelier.

Your classic Tuscany red wine package includes 3 bottles of each of the following wines:

Brunello di Montalcino Cielo D'Ulisse Le Ripi 2015. The wine displays a spectacular, intensely red garnet color. The aromas are characteristic of the Sangiovese Grosso grape, with hints of blackberries, raspberries and plums, accompanied by elegant notes of undergrowth and balsamic bursts. Aging in large oak barrels brings out the typical, delicate notes of vanilla. Fresh in the mouth, with vibrant tannins. The sip is rich and fruity, the structure is powerful and determined, all divinely supported by an acidity that gives the wine a unique balance. An absolute jewel!

Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Conti Capponi Vigna La Fornace 2016. The color is a magnificent ruby red with garnet reflections. The nose is a sequence of aromas that ranges from ripe plum and blackcurrant to forest wildflowers. The aging in oak does not cover the fruit notes, but instead compliments them with hints of delicate, warm spices. There are lovely hints of moist tobacco. In the mouth it is soft and balanced, fragrant and fresh. The tannins are thick but at the same time fine and graceful. A bottle that distinguishes itself for its elegance and finesse.

Vino Nobile di Montepulciano Montemercurio Messagero 2016. In the glass, the color is an intense red ruby. Aromas consist of typical ripe berries and plum, followed by hints of vanilla and light licorice, cloves and black pepper. In the mouth the wine is round, smooth, ideal tannins, not too dry and not too sour with a long finish. Absolutely easy to drink, both clean and crisp. Il Messaggero is most certainly a champion of balance. A wine well done, very versatile in food pairing. Of course it goes well with red meat and game, but also a lovely dish of pasta with an important meat sauce ragł can stand up to this elegant wine without being overpowered.

Bolgheri Ruit Hora Caccia Al Piano 2017. Ruit Hora is a classic exemplar of this philosophy. In the glass it displays an intense ruby-red color. The nose is rich and full, with hints of dark berries and aromatic herbs. Interesting hints of spice combine with woody and toasted notes. The sip is rich and mature. The tannins are not aggressive and are perfectly integrated with the wine?s acidity. The medium structure has a long persistence, well supported by the aromatic complexity.
