SUPER TUSCAN HOODIEMy first foray into non French Wine - but not too far away as it's with Italian wine that uses traditional French grapes in their blend.The term 'Super Tuscan' came about to describe a collection of outstanding wines made from grapes that weren't originally allowed under Tuscany's strict appellation laws.In the 1940's when someone decided they didn't want the traditional Sangiovese wine and preferred the style of Bordeaux, they planted some Cabernet Franc with the intention never to sell the wine. They now use a variety of traditional French grapes, sometimes also blended with Sangiovese. These wines used to be classed as standard table wines, but now some carry the IGT label and you can find some excellent examples that have won critical acclaim from top experts.Regardless, the word SUPER TUSCAN lends itself perfectly, especially as the story is about those that bent the rules in order to make something great. That's pretty cool.
