What other locale would be more appropriate as the preeminent Italian wine region than that which birthed the Renaissance? Tuscany boasts a varied landscape of rolling hills and low mountains that create a myriad of mesoclimates for unique growing conditions as you travel from vineyard to vineyard. Although sangiovese is the most widely grown grape in this region, you’d be surprised at how much the characteristics fluctuate from one to another. Four of Italy’s most celebrated red wines come from Tuscany, including Chianti, Chianti Classico, Brunello di Montalcino, and Vino Nobile di Montepulciano. Wine has strong ties to art and religion in this part of the world, and for local residents, it’s part of everyday life and near-unwaveringly present at the lunch and dinner table.

Our Toscana features dark fruit flavors and aromas of blackberry and black currant, with hints of vanilla and spice, accentuated by velvety tannins and a round finish. This full bodied red has a distinct oak character and is exceedingly dry with an alcohol content of 14% by volume.

The Signature Series™ Toscana is one of the most satisfying kits to make thanks to the inclusion of grape skins. You’ll mirror the professional vintner process of “punching the cap”, which makes your winemaking adventure even more hands on. VineCo’s jammy skin packs are much more expressive than dried grape skins, imparting more character from the grapes and boosting tannin structure in the finished wine.

High quality oak cubes are used in the final aging process of the Toscana kit. One of the reasons oak has always been used to age wine is the slow release of delicious, complex compounds that complement the wines flavor. Oak cubes have more depth of flavor than chips or powder and slowly release compounds like furfural (sweet, caramel like), lignins (vanillin, spice, smoke), and lactones (classic oak flavor).

The VineCo Signature Toscana is best enjoyed as a vacation in a glass. Ride a cruiser bike down to your local eatery and grab some tomato-based pasta or Neapolitan style pizza for takeout, then pedal back home to enjoy alongside a tall pour of this voluptuous Italian red.

I've made RJS cru sangiovese kits before and they aren't offered, I'll try it and rate in a year or so

I’ve been to Tuscany and want to see if this wine is true to the region.
