Enjoy a unique assortment of 12 bottles of Italian red wines, each with high critic scores chosen by our sommelier team. These labels and vintages are difficult to find in the US. You'll receive descriptive notes for each wine along with a video presentation and guided tasting with our sommelier.

The Classic Tuscany selection includes 3 bottles of each of the following wines:

Brunello di Montalcino Verbena 2015
The color is a magnificent ruby red with garnet reflections. The nose is a sequence of aromas that ranges from ripe plum, leather, and spices to chocolate and licorice. Includes lovely earthy notes as well. In the mouth it is soft and balanced. Due to the young age the tannins are still vibrant but are already pleasant. Beautiful acidity makes this Brunello easy to drink despite its robustness.

Poggio Rosso San Felice Gran Selezione 2011
"Poggio Rosso" is the perfect exemplar of a Tuscan red. Charming but traditional, elegant but robust. The color is an intense ruby red. The aromas are vigorous, with notes of red berries and violets at first impact, then licorice, leather, and spice in the background with an balsamic note. The chewy, concentrate paltae deliver juicy black cherry, mature, vanilla cinnamon and moche. Delicious and silky in the mouth, with tannins that are elegant and fine, and acidity that supports the structure of the wine.

Vino Nobile di Montepulciano Montemercurio Messagero 2015
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.

Fogio 38 Fornacelle 2015
Foglio 38 is a pure Cabernet Franc, aged in the barrique for 18 months. It stands out for its elegance and the dynamicity of the sip. Dense ruby red color, with purple reflections. The nose highlights balsamic and herbal notes, mint essence, juniper and Mediterranean shrub. The taste is intense, yet maintains a graceful structure and linear development, similar to a Margaux wine. It tapers in progression, while enjoying a great aromatic amplification in the finish of the mouth, revealing the precious contribution of acidity.
