La Bollina Corte Medicea Erastos 2018
- Medium bodied
When the Tuscan winemakers decided to blend in cabernet and merlot with their sangiovese, minds were blown and the Supertuscan was born. Sounds like a superhero origin story, I know. But it’s really the tale of a very traditional wine region doing something entirely unconventional. And it worked a charm. This one is half sangio and a quarter each cab and merlot. It’s given six months in older oak to build structure yet still let the fruit sing. Look for cherries, raspberries, chocolate and a touch of vanillin. And at this price with a 98 point review, this is a Supertuscan at a super deal!
Full price $30.00 from the producer.

In the heart of Gavi lies this 120ha property. Where once resided the Marchioness Figari of Genova, the villa onsite is now a luxury hotel where you can live out your dreams of eating and drinking like Italian nobility. Planted over 25ha (the rest dedicated to golf courses and chestnut woods) are traditional grape varieties like cortese, chardonnay, barbera, dolcetto and nebbiolo. Founded in 2009, La Bollina honours the historical and rural traditions of the area, although their winemaking techniques have been completely overhauled. They now use only the best modern winemaking techniques to make the best Piedmontese wines possible.
Ah...Tuscany. The home of rolling hills, extra virgin olive oil, Steak Florentine and, of course, Chianti. Everything here is about the earth, and it shows through in the produce. Earthy, vinous, purely rustic and unadulterated. Some of our most enjoyable experiences have come from here. They don't generally come cheap, but they're well worth it.
