La Spinosa Prunaiolo 2007

I have not posted a wine review in ages and I can only apologize. Managing work and family life takes up a lot more of my free time these days. Well anyway, do not worry because my passion for the grape has not diminished in this brief absence. I have many new wine experiences which I cannot wait to to share with you and with no further adieu what better better place to return than probably my favorite wine region of Tuscany.

This glorious 2007 Supertuscan blend from La Spinosa is  mix of Sangiovese, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon.  Dark night purple color, full bodied and bursting with flavor. It almost reminds of a  young Guado al Tasso from the infamous Antinori stable, but this wine thankfully costs much less. La Spinosa’s vineyards are located in the Chianti region between Siena and Florence and they practice organic farming. I was fortunate to buy this wine in a charity wine auction for Water Aid run every year by Christies on behalf of Decanter Magazine. ( more about this in due course). With regards to cost this wine retails for about $25 to 30 but unfortunately not easy to find. If you see it on a wine list around this price then buy it. Highly recommended and worth every penny. Drinking well now but a couple more years in the cellar would not do it any harm. Serve with eggplant parmigiana or hearty beef dishes. My rating 92pts.

  1. Hello, I think your blog might be having browser compatibility issues. When I look at your website in Firefox, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, awesome blog!

  2. I had the good fortune to experience this excellent blend during a recent two week stay in Le Torri, a wonderful family run agri-turismo Tuscany villa in San Quirico de Colline. ie The La Spinosa Prunaiola 2009 was a steal at 12 Euros! Great balance…Great value. I wish I could have taken home 12 cases !!!
