Super Tuscans

by Tom Lorimer

There is no better way of assessing a vintage (other than trying it for yourself) than simply asking the winemaker. The question we put to our Tuscan producers, who all came to London recently, was ‘how was 2020 for you?’.
It was not too dissimilar to Burgundy in 2022 – challenging heat (this is becoming the norm), but with periods of cooler temperatures and rain at all the right moments. The result is well-ripened fruit and wonderfully balanced wines with charm, elegance and proportion. Naturally, we’re very ‘on-board’ with 2020.
‘The resulting wines (2020) are incredibly good considering the challenging growing season but do seem to be further evolved than the excellent 2019 vintage’. Jancis Robinson OBE MW
Our Super Tuscans from Le Macchiole and Tenuta del Terriccio all around Bolgheri, are well-known to many of our customers and remain the best value wines (with proven appreciation) in this magical corner of Toscana.
We’re equally thrilled to have a back-vintage of Lupicaia 2016 to offer – similar to Latour, Terriccio release their vintages a little later, with this wine commemorating the late estate owner, Gian Annibale Rossi di Medelana Serafina Ferri (who was known to all as ‘Pucci’) on the front label.
The subsequent press and scores, tell the rest of the story.
