Super Tuscan

Super Tuscan

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

    Morellino di Scansano is a dry red wine from the coastal hills of southern Tuscany in Italy. One of the region's lesser-known DOCG wines, it sits, somewhat underappreciated, in the shadow of its more famous counterparts from Chianti, Montalcino and Montepulciano. The wine is produced in the rolling hills around the medieval village of Scansano. This, rather simply, explains the second half of its name. The first half is less obvious. It refers to the grape variety used to make the wine – Morellino – which is in fact Tuscany's favorite Sangiovese masquerading under a local synonym. The name morellino is a diminutive form of morello, which means 'dark'. The name translates, then, as 'little dark one', an etymology almost identical to another of Sangiovese's many synonyms, Brunello. Learn More
