Tuscany is the home of Sangiovese, central Italy’s predominant grape variety which is responsible both for some of the country’s very best wines and a lot of disappointingly feeble red. But it is also a hotbed of innovation, the region where Solaia, Sassicaia and the like dared to experiment with Bordeaux grape varieties in their ‘Supertuscan’ blends. Although the trend is now moving very firmly back in the opposite direction, towards native grape varieties and traditional methods, the Supertuscan movement is at least partly responsible for pushing the Italian wine industry to modernise and produce cleaner, more consistent wine across the board. Tuscany is now turning out a bewildering array of excellent wine from the traditional to the ultra modern and in all colours and styles.

Tuscany - a chosen few from us

Bolgheri Sassicaia 2008, Tenuta San Guido


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.
