Toscolo 2012 Chianti DOCG
Here's a very affordable and tasty Chianti from importer Neil Empson. Produced from mature vines fruit, the quality exceeds most of what you'll find labeled as Chianti DOCG and may rival many Chianti Classicos. This wine routinely recieves priase from critics and very attractive scores. This 2012 has not been reviewed yet, though overall the vintage was excellent. James Suckling scored the 2011 90 points saying "Amazing quality for a simple Chianti. Beautiful character of sliced ripe strawberries and lemons follow through to a full body, with bright acidity and a silky finish. Firm silky tannins come through. Give it a little more time to come together." Priced for everyday so don't miss it.

      I've indulged on couple of 2010's, this is one is no different and I'm glad it came back around. If you love Chianti's this one is simply unreal value!

              I thought it was a good price, but, unfortunately, I have to conclude with a cliche: That is, you get what you pay for.

              This is a very mediocre wine. I don't recommend it.

                I have purchased a number of the Italian wines from Wine Express. I find that Toscolo is the one I reach for when it's time to open another bottle. I just ordered more.

                    Always a bit scary buying a case, but sometimes it pays off. We opened the first one after dinner, it was smooth with a little hidden bite. Looking forward to many of those evenings.

                      I quite often like to search out the best wines under $20 or so and this one is definitely no exception. Great wine for the price!
