Italy’s wine landscape exploded when Super Tuscans were released in the international market. Rich flavors combined with old world terroir and pedigree propelled this term much like what “Meritage” has done for Bordeaux Blends in California. Non-conformity to appellation rules in Tuscany drove wineries to jump ship from more well-known DOCGs such as Chianti or Brunello di Montalcino. Today, Marchesi Antinori’s Tignanello and Guada al Tasso, Tenuta San Guido’s Sassicaia, Ornellaia, Montevertine, Avignonesi, Le Macchiole, Felsina’s Flaccianello della Pieve and Fontalloro lead the pack for these highly sought after Italian wines.
