Located in central Italy along the Tyrrhenian coast, Tuscany
is home to some of the world’s most notable wine
regions. Chianti, Brunello di Montalcino and Vino Nobile
di Montepulciano are primarily made with Sangiovese grapes.
Tuscany is also known for the dessert wine Vin Santo, made
from a variety of the region’s grapes. Tuscany has twenty-nine
Denominazioni di Origine Controllata (DOC) and seven Denominazioni
di Origine Controllata e Garantita (DOCG). In the
1970‘s a new class of wines known in the trade as “Super Tuscans”
emerged. These wines were made outside DOC/DOCG regulations
but were considered of high quality and commanded
high prices. Many of these wines became cult wines. In the
reformation of the Italian classification system many of
the original Super Tuscans now qualify as DOC or DOCG
wines, but some producers still prefer the declassified
rankings or to use the Indicazione Geografica Tipica (IGT)
classification of Toscana.
