Italy now offers one of the most interesting, varied and unique ranges of quality wine in the world. But it wasn’t always this way. Not long ago, Italian wine was best known for being mass produced and cheap, but the era of the Supertuscan in the 1990s and early 2000s saw a new wave of quality wine, albeit made outside the traditional rules and regulations in the new ‘international’ style. From there, we have now arrived at a revival of traditional Italian grape varieties and regions, and there is a new focus on quality, small artisan winemakers and the astonishing regional diversity that only Italy can offer.

Italy - a chosen few from us

Bolgheri Sassicaia 2003, Tenuta San Guido

£221.40

First released in 1968, Sassicaia is one of the most best and most famous of the Super Tuscans. Shockingly different when it first appeared, its quality has been so high for so long that is is now, deservedly, an accepted classic. One of Italy's greatest wines.

Sassicaia was one of the original ‘Super Tuscan’ wines, a movement that elected to ignore the rules and regulations that had restricted Italian winemakers. It translates as ‘the place of many stones’ which refers to the vineyard's stoney ground. It's success was so complete that in 1994 was granted its own appellation, Bolgheri Sassicaia DOC.
