Happy New Year to everyone, from the family at the Tenuta Il Poggione!
Last year, we have posted an entry from a 1937 catalog of wines on Brunello di Montalcino.
This year, we have decided to translate the entries for all of the eleven Tuscan wines that appear in the catalog. We hope that these informations will be useful to persons who wish to know more and study about the history of the wines of Tuscany. We have found the entries to be very interesting and we hope that you will as well. The first entry about a wine of Tuscany in the catalog is Bianco Superiore dell’Elba, a white wine from the Island of Elba.
Bianco Superiore dell’Elba
This wine is generally known as Procanico Elbano. It is a wine of great finesse: soft straw yellow in color, dry in flavor, fresh, very pleasant, with an alcohol content of 12-13%. It has a very delicate but relatively intense aroma. It can be compared to the best Chablis for its distinctive character, its nobility, and its incomparable quality.
It should be served rather chilled, paired with appetizers and seafood. It’s also well suited for persons with weak stomachs.
