Tuscany, Mosel

Tuscany is the oldest wine region in Italy, with a long history dating back over 2700 years. The region is on the Western coast of Italy, stretching from the coastline of the Tyrrhenian Sea all the way to the Apennine mountains, with the majority of the region being quite hilly.

Contributing to around 6% of Italy's total wine output, Tuscany is the third most planted region, but only the eight biggest producer. Much of this can be attributed to the hilly terroir and poor soils leading to lower yields, but generally higher quality wines. The region produces far more red than white wine, and is responsible for two of the most famous Italian red wines, Chianti and Brunello di Montalcino.

Chianti was first classified in 1716, and the region of Tuscany now has 29 DOC and 7 DOCG classifications. In the 1970s 'Super Tuscan' wines emerged of supreme quality, commanding very high prices. Although they were initially produced outside the DOC or DOCG zones, most of the regions have since been classified, though some producers still opt to use the simpler and less restrictive IGT labelling.

The famous red wine Chianti is based on the the Sangiovese variety, though is most commonly blended with Shiraz or Cabernet Sauvignon. The blending of multiple grapes is common, even Bordeaux blends can be found. White wines produced include Vermentino, Vernaccia, Pinot Blanc and Chardonnay.
Mosel is one of 13 wine growing regions in Germany and is located in the South Eastern corner of the country along the Mosel River, from which the area was named.

Along with most of Germany the region has a northern continental climate, so the key here is to get as much sun exposure on to the vines, else they won't ripen. For this reason, grapes are grown only on certain slopes along the Mosel river, as across the river on the other side, there is simply not enough sunlight for the grapes to grow. The steep slopes along the Mosel River makes some of the vineyards the most labour intensive in the world. No machines can be used on the steep slopes that are so dangerous they have claimed the lives of some vineyard workers.

The wines from the upper Mosel are characterised by low alcohol levels (6-9%). Wines of middle Mosel are some of the finest examples in all of Germany, perfectly balanced and poised. Top wines are known to comfortably cellar 50 or even 100 years!

Most all Mosel wines are packaged in green 'Hock' style bottles and a key characteristic of all Mosel wines is their normally high-acidity and clearly defined flavors. Riesling is the king of Mosel region where anything from dry to delicious dessert wines are made.
