For fans of Tuscan wines, it's a great opportunity to either stock your cellar or expand your horizons with new producers and wines. If you are just discovering the region and its different expressions of Sangiovese, not to mention its Bordeaux-inspired blends, your timing is perfect, with the duo of 2015 and 2016 offering a bounty of excellent reds. It may be some time before Italy's premier region offers such back-to-back riches.
