    Fantastic little Super Tuscan at an everyday price. The nose is bold with earth and red fruited elements. The wine displays ripe fruit, softer tannins as well as that Tuscan dust on the palate that I love so much. Goes great with pizza, burgers or just by itself.

    Everyday Super Tuscan. Good fruit and structure with enough complexity that keeps you coming back for more.

    This is something you'll want to stock up on if wine consistently makes an appearance at your weeknight dinner table. With its tart cherry, crushed stones, bright acidity and subtle spiciness, this is a fantastic table wine that ticks all the boxes: great flavor and versatility, bears structure, is easy drinking, and sells at an absurdly low price point. Fab!

    For $10.99 this is truly a no-brainer. It's an energetic and well-structured wine with notes of deep red fruits, mint, rosemary, and earth. Easy drinking and delicious. This is your new go-to pizza wine, my friends!

    Red fruits combine with an earthy quality on the nose - you can tell that this is an honest Tuscan wine made well, to be enjoyed with some food. The flavors also deliver, with freshness and crispness, but interestingly for a sangiovese blend at this price point, minimal rusticity or bite. It's just a well balanced wine that will serve you well for charcuterie, pizza, pasta, or mashed potatoes topped with sauteed mushrooms and garlic.

    The owners of Felsina purchased this Chianti Colli Senesi property in 1980 and have developed it into one of the finest in this zone located Southeast of Chianti Classico. The 2016 Lucilla is a blend of Cabernet, Merlot and Sangiovese with aromas and flavors of bright and earthy red fruit and a core of juicy acidity that makes it ideal at the table. Try this with pasta with red sauce, pizza, meats and everyday fare. A steal at $10.99.

    A lively nose of juicy red fruits and fresh herbs. The palate will hit you with power and intensity from bold fruit, high acidity, and dynamic structure. It is a great Toscana to lead you into the world of Super Tuscans or to replace those pricey bottles for a relaxing mid week glass.

    The nose of this wine says power, just from the intensity of the fruit character. It shows a bold depth of currant and plum speared by a focused wild cherry accented with bits of dried herb. On the palate the wine shows its depth, it is a Super Tuscan blend, and the structure of the Cabernet and the plush texture of the merlot weight are brought to focus by the superb Sangiovese. The flavors are a mélange of dark fruit but with a truly savory feel, more umami with hints of Tuscan dust. The finish is powerful, super fine tannin frames the finish and gives real definition to this superb wine for the price!

    This is one of my favorite producers from Tuscany. This is their "Super Tuscan" - a very user friendly wine, the blend is Sangiovese, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Lots of dark skinned fruit with spice, minerals that complete each other on the nose and palate. The wine has pleasantly soft tannins, but good acidity to pull it all together. Buy two, the first one will disappear quickly. This 2016 ROCKS !!!
