Hello, cyndirir!

Well, you've struck on a weakness of mine...there are few things I
enjoy more than good food and drink (hence my mid-life "course
correction" from sales to cooking).

For all things related to good food and good wine, an excellent
resource is the website of the "Slow Food Movement."  This loose-knit
international organization is dedicated to (among other things) the
preservation of traditional foods, beverages, and heirloom crops.

Their wine site provides a wealth of information regarding Italian
wines.  If you follow the link below, you will find a list of 55
Tuscan wines, from various producers, rated at "Three Glasses."  You
will note that, as Tehuti had indicated, many of them are from the
fabled 1997 vintage (though 1998 is well-represented, as well). 
Contact information for these vintners is available on the site as

I did not search the internet for this answer, as I knew that a
suitable list existed on the "Slow Foods" website.  You may find
considerable interest in browsing the rest of the site for regional
specialties from all over the world (even my Nova Scotia home).  The
main site is at

Happy eating and drinking!

My apologies...the link I'd posted (which works fine in my word
processing document)does not appear to work in the answer.

If you find (as I did) that the page loads without data, click the
larger drop-down box and choose "Tuscany", then the smaller box and
choose "2001."  This will bring up the list I'd referred to, of 55
excellent Tuscan wines.

This URL will provide you with a chart of the overall quality of wines
from Tuscany and other regions for harvests from 1970 to 2001. It also
indicates which wines are ready to drink and which need storage:

I post this as a comment since I do not have information on specific
labels. In general, 1997 is considered to be the best vintage ever in
