Super Tuscan: Many of the important and famous wines in Tuscany are called Super Tuscans.. This name was invented by Robert Parker who found notable interest in these wines and helped them become famous world wide.
It is an undefined term that usually refers to a wine that is mostly Sangiovese with Cabernet , Merlot or Syrah added.
The term is not on the Label because Italy does not recognize the Term.
The higher acids of the Sangiovese combined with the more fruit in the Cabernet, Merlot and Syrah brings out a impressive taste
A Super Tuscan is often the signature of the wine-producer; a precious wine that sometimes are difficult to find outside the latest vintage - or even to get a taste of. For this reason the Super Tuscans (just like Brunellos and Barolos) can become a good investment, as their commercial value may double or triple in time.
" Wine is a location, Beer and Whiskey are recipes. Tuscany is a great location for Sangiovese combined with Cabernet and Merlot!" Ciao Daniel
