2020 Kirkland Signature Toscana

2020 Kirkland Signature Toscana

It was a nice surprise to run into this Kirkland wine a little earlier than normal. Last year we didn’t see until October.

Good news right off the bat is that the price actually went down $1 to $13.99. That’s a good move in our opinion, as this has historically been a good, not great, part of the Kirkland wine portfolio. So a little price reduction might attract more interest.

Making a Super Tuscan seems like a no brainer for the Kirkland brand, but we just continue to want more from this wine. Same rock star wine maker as before. Very similar tasting notes for us.

The wine is a medium ruby in glass with earthy, red berry on the nose; it is medium in body; flavors of black cherry, anise, notes of baking spice; it’s fleshy, earthy; just ok in the finish that wraps up fast.

Last vintage we went 87 points, and we’re going to bring it down a point from there to 86.

This is a good pizza wine, an every day table wine, but just leaves a bit to desired compared to many others Kirkland wines.

It’s been a little while since we reviewed the Villa Antinori Toscana (and we’ve seen it back in stores), but we’d recommend that bottle as a good alternative choice here. Rating: 86 points

I think this wine deserves a little more love than it's getting here. When first uncorked it is very tight but does open up with some air and works well with food. Not a killer value for what you get but most Super Tuscans are priced way above. I used to be big Anitori fan but feel their value offerings have slipped in quality. My local Costco (Kauai) recently had a very nice Barbera d'Asti but when I went back a couple weeks later it was gone.

$13.99 for an 86 point rating wine - still way overpriced. Just one example I found at Costco recently - Masciaraelli Montepulciano D'Abruzzo -at $9.99. a solid dinner wine and I have had the Kirland Tuscan a few times in recent years - found it far from anything worthy of praise. The Masciarelli - a value - price and experience.

Any idea what the actual blend is?

Not really. We saw the blend posted unofficially online for the 2018 vintage and it was 75% Sangiovese, 22% Merlot and 3% Cabernet Sauvignon. So could be similar.
