Super Tuscan

Super Tuscan

Super Tuscan is a term used to describe red wines from Tuscany that include non-indigenous grapes, particularly Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Syrah. The creation of super Tuscan wines resulted from the frustration winemakers had towards a slow bureaucracy in changing Italy’s wine law during the 1970s. Winemakers began mixing ‘unsanctioned’ wine varieties (like Merlot) into their blends to make high-quality wines. The legal system eventually yielded in 1992 with the creation of IGT, a new designation that gave winemakers the ability to be more creative.
One of the most famous Super Tuscan wines is the Sassicaia, but there's more out there. Consider these organic Super Tuscan wines and discover their high quality. Pair them with read meat, grilled steak, tagliatta and stews.

Super Tuscan est un terme utilisé pour décrire les vins rouges de Toscane qui comprennent des cépages non indigènes, en particulier le merlot, le cabernet sauvignon et la syrah. La création de super vins toscans est le résultat de la frustration des viticulteurs face à la lenteur de la bureaucratie à modifier la loi italienne sur le vin dans les années 1970. Les viticulteurs ont commencé à mélanger des cépages «non autorisés» (comme le merlot) dans leurs mélanges pour faire des vins de haute qualité. Le système juridique a finalement cédé en 1992 avec la création d'IGT, une nouvelle désignation qui a donné aux vignerons la possibilité d'être plus créatifs.
L'un des vins super tuscans les plus célèbres est le Sassicaia, mais il y en a plus. Considérez ces vins super toscans biologiques et découvrez leur haute qualité. Accompagnez-les de viande rouge, de steak grillé, de tagliata et de ragoûts.
