Super Tuscan Wines
Arte Vino is a wine importing and distributing company with a portfolio including some small artisan Italian family owned wines, including Super Tuscan wines.
Super Tuscan is a term coined by Robert Parker. It’s not an official category of wine. In the long history of Italian wine, Super Tuscans are relatively new to the wine world. The wines belong to a category called IGT (Indicazione Geografica Tipic = typical regional wine). IGTs came about in the late 1960s when some Tuscan wine producers decided that the rules and recipe for receiving Chianti DOC certification were too restrictive and wanted more freedom in their winemaking. In contrast to Chianti and Chianti Classico, IGTs have very few rules and restrictions.
The winemaker has a totally free hand to decide the grape variety, vinification, aging and final blend. This freedom enables the winemaker to show his or her true talent, so Super Tuscans are like their signature.
