Super Tuscan

Supertuscan is defined as red wines produced in Tuscany, which do not respect the traditional rules of preparation of the region, but use other types of grapes, especially cabernet sauvignon, in addition to or in place of the traditional Sangiovese and therefore can not be classified as DOCG products. These wines are often made in barriques (oak barrels) for about 12 – 14 months.
