Supertuscan is not a winezone like Chianti or Montalcino but is more a new style of wine that some wineries started to produce here in Tuscany at the end of “60s. This wine is made of international grape varieties.
The typical blend is made of Cabernet and Merlot but there are some types that inculde others Franch varieties such as Syrah or Petit Verdot. I prefer to bring my guests in some small wineries around Florence where they could taste this special blend and enjoy also the beautiful countryside.
We cannot recommend this tour enough!! My husband and I loved every part of the tour- it is well worth the time and cost. Vittorio was our wine guide and driver for the day- he selects the perfect wineries in order to give you a great and varied experience and helps you to learn about wine and the region. We enjoyed each the unique select producer, the local, smaller and passionate producer, and the large quality producer. You get to taste plenty of great wines and have a beautiful, authentic, Tuscan lunch. All the locations were very friendly and educated and also helped to ship wine home easily. The tour sizes are also nice, small, personal. There are only good things to say here! Thank you Vittorio we will have many great memories!
