Fattoria Piazzano helps to remind us what the Supertuscan is all about with their Blend 2. An intriguing regional blend of Sangiovese, Colorino, and Malvasia Nera may not fit into the rules of Chianti, but make for an explosively fruity, broad, and balanced wine with tons to enjoy. A big, juicy Tuscan wine doesn't have to contain international varieties to be super, case in point with this beautiful blend.
 
94 Points - James Suckling!
"It's full-bodied and shows wonderful concentration of fruit and velvety, round tannins. So much going on here. Soft and juicy. Not a wine for the long run, but it's generous and voluptuous nonetheless."

Score: 94
Country: Italy
Region: Tuscany
Vintage: 2013

Wow. This is really something. It's full-bodied and shows wonderful concentration of fruit and velvety, round tannins. So much going on here. Soft and juicy. Not a wine for the long run, but it's generous and voluptuous nonetheless. A fun blend of colorino, sangiovese and malvasia nera. Better in 2017.
