Tuscany, 1996

1996 was a very good Tuscan vintage.

A fine, warm spring was followed by a cooler than average summer and autumn of intermittent rain resulting in uneven ripening. However, time in the bottle has been kind, and while it did not produce blockbuster wines, it did produce supple, medium-bodied wines with good fruit and elegance.
