2015 Tuscany: The New “Gold Standard”

A Vintage Not To Be Missed

By Graham Tucker | February 21, 2019

2015 is the greatest vintage Tuscany has seen in almost 20 years. And if you want to go as far as saying 2015 was the stronger vintage than the iconic, classic harvest of 1997, then a case is to be made that 2015 has become the new “gold standard” for how glorious the region’s wines can be.

The weather was perfect — warm with generous sunshine and cool nights. The wines, from the best producers show wonderful intensity, richness and concentration. And yet, the wines are so well balanced and fresh — a pleasure to drink and showcases the true depth and glory that makes Tuscan reds so stunning and appealing.

Act quickly. Quantities are limited and moving fast. This is a vintage you do not want to look back on and wish you had acquired sooner.
