On the Tuscan Coast: New Releases

This year readers will find a wide range of outstanding wines from Italy’s Maremma, a stretch of coastal vineyards that runs from the province of Grosseto in the south to Livorno to the north. Although some of Italy’s most famous wines are found here, it is important to remember that Maremma, once an open big, disease-infested marsh, has only been considered a world-class wine region for a few decades.

Alla Dama Bianca, Trieste, Italy

Alla Dama Bianca is one of my favorite places to go for Adriatic seafood at its best. The food is delicious, while the outdoor terrace is a great spot to enjoy a leisurely meal and the long days of summer. Several recent dinners were outstanding.

2013 La Mozza Morellino di Scansano I Perazzi, 91 points

The 2013 Morellino di Scansano I Perazzi is gorgeous. Sweet floral notes meld into a core of black cherry, hard candy, lavender, mint and sage, all with an added kick of acidity that is typical of the year. (AG)

1990 Jacques Selosse Brut Blanc de Blancs

What a thrill it is to taste and drink Anselme Selosse’s 1990 Brut Blanc de Blancs once again. Still vibrant and fresh with little in the way of evolution since I last had it, the 1990 remains a stratospheric, towering Champagne.

1985 Georges Mugneret Ruchottes-Chambertin
