Back for an encore!

Back in May of 2022 Rande stayed in San Gimignano

What Wine Spectator says about the
Region of Tuscany 2017 vintage…..

93 Points
Vibrant, elegant wines from a year that began cool, warming from July on;
grapes harvested under ideal conditions.



Our Thoughts on this wine....
Dark red in color. Its nose is intense defined by notes of red berries;
blueberries and black currants, notes of toasted hazelnuts, spices and a hint toasty vanilla.
Full-bodied palate is well rounded with supple velvety tannins and dark spices on the long finish.
A treat at an affordable price.

A bit about Green hills, ancient villages and cities of art  that make up the Aretino territory.....

ARETINE VALLEY MEETING POINT
The confluence point of three of the four valleys that are part of the province of Arezzo,
is surrounded to the north by the Casentino, to the south from the Chiana Valley, to the east from the Valtiberina (where the first section of the Tiber flows) and finally, to the northwest by the upper Valdarno
with its characteristic "flounce" landscape, consisting of yellow reliefs
due to the stratification of clay, gravel and sand that creates striking and colorful scenery.


ARETINO, HOME OF GREAT ARTISTS
But the Aretino is, above all, the home of great artists such as Petrarca, Piero della Francesca, Michelangelo
each of whom have left signs of their art in various sites of the territory.
For fans of Romanesque art,the different churches and castles of the territory
provide for a full immersion in the Middle Ages.
Several centuries before much of the province of Arezzo was inhabited by the ancient and fascinating population of the Etruscans, testifying to the great importance of the same city of Arezzo in the Etruscan era.
