Om de druivenoogst van 2012 in Toscane te vieren lanceert de website To Toscane een blogwedstrijd over Toscaanse wijnen. Ze vroegen mij per mail of ik mee wilde doen – en aangezien de prijs bestaat uit zes flessen wijn van hun favoriete Chianti wijnproducent, Castello di Ama, waar onze Smaak-fotograaf net op bezoek is geweest maar waarbij ik helaas verstek moest laten gaan, besloot ik een poging te wagen.

Top Tip on choosing Tuscan Wine

When choosing wines from Tuscany, it is true to say that price will often be a guide to quality, the range on offer can be daunting, but see it as a challenge and try as many as possible and remember that wine is a very subjective experience . . .."

Top Tip on choosing Tuscan Wine
by Kovas Palubinskas at www.50statesofwine.com

A top tip for choosing a wine from Tuscany is to know and understand the classification system. The system has three tiers: Vina da Tavola, or table wine, followed by Indicazione Geografica Tipica (IGT), which denotes a medium-quality wine, and finally, the Denominazione di Origine Controllata e Garantita (DOCG), generally the highest quality wines. Beyond this classification however, lie the "Super Tuscans," wines that don't fit the mold and allow for further exploration."

Top Tip on choosing Tuscan Wine
by Katja Meier at

TRUST YOUR TASTE With all the wine rating going on nowadays, it's easy to forget that each of us is his or her own master of wine. Your favorite Tuscan wine didn't get 95 out of 100 by Suckling, Parker or any of the other wine gurus? Dare to stand up for your taste buds. Drink what you want, stay curious and open minded and enjoy every sip of it."

My top tip for choosing a wine from Tuscany involves no long air flights and no change in time zones required. Just take a trip to the grocery store and your local wine shop. You will undoubtedly learn a great deal about Tuscan wines from your local wine merchant. Then, go home, get cooking, have a glass of wine and enjoy your evening!"
