Supertuscan

Definition

Wine

  • a premium Tuscan wine with an intense fruit and heavy oak character. The term was coined when the Marchese Incisa della Rochetta of Tuscany worked with Baron Philippe de Rothschild to bring new varieties of Cabernet Sauvignon grapevines into Tuscany. They aimed to concentrate not on the traditional Chianti wines of the region but instead on high-quality, low-yield premium wines that have almost nothing in common with the traditional Chianti DOC requirements. They are labelled Vino da Tavola. Their changes have revolutionised the winemaking of the region.
