Super Tuscans are without a doubt the biggest success story that came from a time when planting Bordeaux varietals was fashionable. Iconic wines like Ornellaia, Sassicaia, and Tignanello were a hot commodity, and while the pendulum has now swung to a focus on indigenous varietals, Super Tuscan’s place at the table remains secure. One fine example that will not break the bank is Piaggia’s Il Sasso cuvée. Comforting aromas of blackberry compote, brandied cherries, currants and plums drift over tobacco, fresh pottery soil, cacao and warm baking spices. The acidity casts a wide net over a full bodied, concentrated, slightly creamy texture that’s halted by elegant velvety tannins with a lengthy herbal, spicy and earthy finish. Truly a cozy wine to warm up with on cold winter nights.
