Super Tuscan | Wine Classic

Super Tuscan | Wine Classic

According to legend, a Briton exclaimed 'This is a super Tuscan!' at a wine tasting and thus gave the name to a new generation of wines in the 1970s. At the time, he was referring to Sassicaia, which was created from a blend of Bordeaux grapes at Tenuta San Guido. At the same time, another Supertoscan saw the light of day in the Antinori house. Pietro Antinori was firmly convinced that he could produce wines of the highest quality even outside the rigid DOC regulations. Thus it came about that in 1971 his Tignanello was launched on the market. This wine contained fewer white grapes than prescribed and was also aged in barriques, i.e. wooden barrels, which were unusual at the time. The barriques should remain decisive for the production of the Supertoskaner until today, which gives it an international taste.

The Supertoscan has revolutionized the cultivation of wine in Tuscany, it is said: To this day, he is not subject to any fixed specifications. It can be made just as much from the top-quality Sangiovese grapes as from a blend of Bordeaux grapes. Accordingly variable and individual is also the note of the Supertoskaner. Initially known as 'Vino di Tavola', today Supertoscans carry the IGT seal, which is the second highest quality level for Italian wines. - Gerardo

´Le Difese´ Toscana IGT 2019, Tenuta San Guido, Toskana

Le Difese Toscana IGT 2019


Tenuta San Guido, Tuscany

Le Difese is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Sangiovese, which is aged for 12 months in French and American barriques. The color is a lively garnet red, with aromas of wild berries and plums, as well as light floral notes and some underbrush. In the drink fresh and juicy, of typical Sangiovese character. - Gerardo

'Bright ruby red with a sparkling core. A touch of reduction on the nose, opening with air on cherries, cinnamon sticks, wild strawberries and bright spice notes. Clear and juicy on the palate, showing good drinkability, pithy salty tannin underpins the finish.' - Falstaff

'Fresh fruity nose with notes of small forest fruits, also fine spice; balanced on the palate, juicy texture with a pleasant finish.' - Vinum

'Surprisingly pale – more Pinot-like than a Cabernet blend! A sweet-sour red-cherry fruit profile, with a notable herbal edge, perhaps reflecting the higher Sangiovese proportion than 2018. On swirling, some cassis joins the party and there’s a background woody, cinnamon note. That sweet-sour sense comes through on the palate too, with a ripeness of red cherry and strawberry cut through with acidity. Pretty fine-grained, powdery tannins that are more refined than previous Le Difese vintages I have tasted. A touch of alcohol on the finish, but overall an enjoyable, perfumed red.' - Jancis Robinson

´Guidalberto´ Toscana IGT 2019, Tenuta San Guido, Toskana
Guidalberto Toscana IGT 2019

Tenuta San Guido, Tuscany

Guidalberto is a typical 'Supertuscan' made from selected Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grapes: the color is a rich ruby red with intense bright reflections. The aroma is of ripe red fruits, some bourbon vanilla and chocolate. On the palate, full-bodied and of dense tannins, a wine full of character. Partly the same grape material is used as for the first wine of the house, Sassicaia. - Gerardo

'Elegant, dark ruby red. Opens on delicate bacony nuances, then ripe raspberries and cherries, reverberating with delicate earthy nuances and wild berries. On the palate with plenty of grip and juicy tannin, has salty undertones, well balanced in itself, with persistence.' - Falstaff
