Super Tuscan Wines!


Italy has a wide range of wines, which differentiate in taste and characteristics, thanks to the different climate and soil. Tuscany is home to some of the
world’s most notable wine regions and there is where a new category of wine was born: The Super Tuscan.



Super Tuscan wines are made outside DOC and DOCG regulations but they are considered of high quality and commanded high prices; many of these wines became cult wines. Their peculiarity is that they are made of a mix of different types of grapes such as: Sangiovese, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon, and the wine age or ferment in oak barrels.



Super Tuscan wines quality is not comparable with other type of wines and because they can’t be classified as DOC and DOCG, some of the Super Tuscan
wines are denominated IGT Tuscany or Bolgheri DOC Superior.

Super Tuscan wines are extremely sensible to the temperature; they need to be stored at a temperature up to 18°C to avoid the formation of molds and
preserve all their taste and flavour.
