In early October--will be travelling with a (small) group so don't know how much control of our agenda we'll have. I'm sure we'll be able to get to a few adequate (or better) wine stores... We won't be in Brun di Mont itself, but I'm wondering if buying some of these amazing 1997s (we WILL be in super Tuscan territory) there will be worth it--in terms of selection, price and hassle after dragging or shipping home. Am I better off tasting there and continuing to scour local sources at home for bottles to cellar? Would ultimately like to have at least a case's worth of these wines (not necessarily the same one)...Anyone with any experience in this regard??

I'm new to the forum, but thank you for any help--here's to tuscan wines!

You'll be happy to know that the Italians seem to be very helpful. When I was there several years ago, I went to a couple of estates and then just asked for recomendations from there. I expirienced some of the best wines Tuscany had to offer and all from referal of a couple of other wineries/estates. Also information on wine in the region is fairly readily available in Sienna and Florence not to mention some of the smaller wine villages. All the train stations now have small information centers and there is always someone who speaks English there. Don't just stick to the Supertuscans, try some of the Rserva Chiantis as well. Some of these wines are brilliant. Basciano was a great place to visit and the Villages in the Rufina district are so steeped in history and wine it was scary.
