I recently visited an area of Tuscany that is, ironically, probably better known for old school Vespa production than for wine, despite being in a prime tourist location between some of the region’s most popular northern cities: Terre di Pisa. It’s an area with a tight-knit, talented group of producers, and some of the more fascinating vineyard soils that you’ll ever see (and believe me, I’ve seen a lot of them).
I wrote about the experience for Palate Press, which you can check out via the link below:
I’m not going to give away the wine geekiness goodies from the article here (c’mon, you’re not really that lazy, are you?) but I thought that I’d at least list and link the wines highlighted in the piece:
- 2015 Fibbiano “Fonte delle Donne” White
- 2012 Fibbiano “Ceppatella”
- 2010 Pietro Beconcini Agricola “Vigna alle Nicchie” Tempranillo
- 2014 Podere Marcampo Severus
- 2011 Sangervasio “A Sirio”
- 2011 Podere la Chiesa “Opera in Rosso”
Check out the article for the details, and, of course, the wines themselves (for a taste of what Tuscany is like from an area not dominated by the dueling monocultures of grapes and olives…).
