Tuttobene Tuscana Rosso

Tenimenti Angelini produces excellent wines from the three main wine regions in Tuscany: Chianti (San Leonino), Montalcino (Val di Suga) and Montepulciano (Tenuta TreRose). Under the careful supervision of

Director/Winemaker Mario Calzolari, Angelini has managed to do something that is not easy to accomplish: to capture in a bottle the essence of Tuscany, its sunny days, its warmth and the Mediterranean flavors that go so well with classic Italian dishes.

The wine is tuttobene, meaning "all is going well." tuttobene has the TOSCANA IGT (Indicazione Geografica Tipica) denomination and is made from a judicious varietal blend that is characteristic of the Tuscan region.

Tuscany

Tuscany (Italian: Toscana, pronounced [tosˈkaːna]) is a region in Central Italy. It has an area of about 23,000 square kilometers (8,900 sq mi) and a population of about 3.7 million inhabitants. The regional capital is Florence. Tuscany is known for its beautiful landscapes, its rich artistic legacy and vast influence on high culture. Tuscany is widely regarded as the true birthplace of the Italian Renaissance, and has been home to some of the most influential people in the history of arts and science, such as Petrarch, Dante, Botticelli, Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, Galileo Galilei, Amerigo Vespucci, Luca Pacioli and Puccini. Due to this, the region has several museums (such as the Uffizi, the Pitti Palace and the Chianciano Museum of Art). Tuscany has a unique culinary tradition, and is famous for its wines (most famous of which are Chianti, Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, Morellino di Scansano and Brunello di Montalcino). All of these wines are expensive even Chianti has become more expensive. There are no plain Chiantis (not Classico or Reserva) anywhere near the $10 price point anymore. Here is a tasty Tuscan red to the rescue.

Wine Tasting Notes

Tuttobene is a very pleasant wine with great structure and balance. The nose and palate display ripe fruit, red berries and subtle herbal notes. It is medium to full-bodied with remarkable tannins, yet is also silky with a smooth acidity and a rich, fruity finish.
