We are taking you to Italy this weekend and more specifically Tuscany.
We have some of the most legendary Super Tuscan's available! The Tuscan terroir and stunning landscape produce drinks worthy of gods.
My personal pick in the lineup is the 1998 Masseto. Once your lips kiss the wine you are sent on a wild journey of flavor; seductive cherry, nuts, wildflowers and a hint of honey. It is absolutely delicious.
The Sassicaia 1997 is an under the radar steal too! Pretty aromas of spices, cherries, and blackberries. On the palate the wine is liquid silk, super intense and the finish goes on forever.
Secure a few of these beauties to add to your Super Tuscan Collection today.
"This is opulent and harmonious in a broad, powerful way, yet with good balancing structure. Coffee, leather, lush fruit, plum and fruitcake flavors ply the texture. Reveals a fine, expansive swath of fruit and spice on the finish. Merlot.—Non-blind Masseto vertical."

"The 1998 is even better. It shares much of the richness of the 1997, but with more delineation and nuance. The wine blossoms beautifully on the mid-palate and finish, with layers of expressive fruit and fabulous overall balance. This is a stunning Masseto."

"A towering, vivid wine, the 2006 Ornellaia bristles with power, depth and intensity. Broad swaths of tannin support the vibrant, youthful flavors in a captivating, breathtaking wine of the highest level. From magnum, the 2006 is an infant. Those lucky enough to own it are in for a treat."

"The 2008 Sassicaia is a rich, deep wine imbued with notable class in its black cherries, plums, grilled herbs, minerals and smoke. The 2008 is a decidedly buttoned-up, firm Sassicaia that is currently holding back much of its potential, unlike the 2006 and 2007, both of which were far more obvious wines. Readers who can afford to wait will be treated to a sublime wine once this settles down in bottle. Muscular, firm tannins frame the exquisite finish in this dark, implosive Sassicaia. The 2008 Sassicaia is 85% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Cabernet Franc. The wine spent 24 months in French oak barrels. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2038.
