Wine Critic Reviews for 2017 Montesecondo TIN Toscana IGT

The 2017 Tin, 100% Sangiovese done in amphora, is a total knock-out. It is a riveting wine from proprietor Silvio Messana. Time in the glass reveals a wine of unreal complexity and bright, explosive energy. Sage, menthol, tobacco and dried flower accents complement the Sangiovese fruit in this striking wine. In a word: superb.

The Montesecondo 2017 Sangiovese Tïn is a terrific discovery and a wine I am happy to recommend. This pure expression of Sangiovese is lifted and bright with elegant sharpness and pinpoint focus. The bouquet is heavily mineral-driven with dark stones that resemble slate, granite or iron ore. There is a salty, almost sanguine quality to the bouquet that is softened up by blue flower, forest berry and campfire ash. You also get a carbonic note that pops with cherry and dried rose.

Country Italy: What are the first things that come to mind when thinking about Italy and Italian culture? There's one thing that nearly everyone tends to mention, it's the food - and where there's fine food, there is almost always fine wine. Italy is the most prolific wine region in the world, outclassing even France in terms of production quantity. Even if you're a complete wine novice, you have almost certainly heard of names such as Barolo and Barbaresco, Italy's most famous wine styles. When it comes to soil composition and other geographical characteristics, Italy offers a lot of diversity, and this never fails to show in the wines themselves.

Region Tuscany: Italian culture worships the concept of a shared meal, and their wines scream for a chance to be uncorked with your friends and family. The region's Mediterranean climate and hilly landscape combine to create a beautiful viticultural environment, where every chosen grape is brought to its full potential and transmuted into drinks worthy of gods. The vineyards are planted along the higher reaches of the hill slopes, creating a gorgeous view of the Italian landscape. Once your lips kiss the wine, you're sent spiraling down a veritable whirlpool of pure flavor, touching upon notes of sensuous cherry, nuts, floral hints and undertones of honey and minerals. The wines can be as sweet as a fresh summer romance, and carry an air of dignity and elegance about them that can stimulate your intellect for months as you contemplate the seemingly infinite intricacies and details in the texture. Tuscany is an important part of Italian viticulture, and sampling their wines is the closest you can get to visiting this heavenly region and experiencing the culture.
