International Italy

In the Italian culture of wine and food, tradition typically reigns supreme. Each region of Italy prides itself on long-established wine production methods utilizing the indigenous grape varieties distinctive to each terroir. This changed in Tuscany in the 1970s when an adventurous group of frustrated winemakers decided to revolutionize their winemaking. They broke with all convention and began blending French grape varieties with their sacred Sangiovese. Thus, the “Super Tuscans” were born! Super-exceptional quality describes these wines that blend Sangiovese with non-indigenous varieties such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah, and Cabernet Franc. With tasting notes remarkably similar to the red blends of Bordeaux and imbued with quintessential elements of the Italian terroir, the Super Tuscans are rich and concentrated expressions of black currant, blackberry, violet, mineral, and spice. Their vibrant acidity and structure allow these wines to age for years to come. We are excited to offer the finest of the Super Tuscans, such as Sassicaia, Tignanello, Sette Ponti, Solaia, Guado al Tasso, and Saffredi . . . to name a few! Purchase your Super Tuscan today and experience for yourself the modern-day movement of an International Italy.
