Tuscany’s most famous vinous export has to be Chianti – a region responsible for some of the best and worst wines on the market! But this giant of Italian viticulture has so much more to offer than something red and insipid to drink alongside a spag bol in a suburban Italian restaurant.
The Super Tuscans created a sensation when they were famously created by the Antinori family with their Tignanello. These wines showcase what can be done with ‘international’ varieties – usually Merlot and Cabernet Sauvigon – on the soils of Maremma, and continue to produce some of the best of what Tuscany has to offer.
It’s not all about red wine either – the region’s whites are well worth taking notice of – light, bright and mineral, and usually based on the native varieties of Vernaccia or Vermentino.
Join us for a whistle-stop tour around one of Italy’s most famous winemaking regions.
