Tuscany is without doubt one of those wine regions that give some of the most important reds in the World. It is a region full of tradition, but in continuous evolution since the introduction of international grape varietals and the use of the French barrels that became common in the seventies. Beginning in the 80's and through the 90's the new wines, Super Tuscans, were a peak for Tuscan wine producers growing wines with an international taste that gave a very good name to the area.

The designation system was introduced in the sixties, but was very rigid and had yet very little to do with the quality of wine. The gradual modernization of the appellation system has now drawn our attention back to the traditional wines of the area made with the native grape varietals and without excessive expression of the foreign oak barrels. Nowadays, the trend seems to be to go backwards to rediscover the indigenous grapes and more natural wine making methods.

It is becoming clear to many that Tuscany is not only the land of the great Brunello and the award winning Super Tuscan, often available only to wine collectors. It is a region that has a great many interesting wines (pure and blends) made with grape varietals particular and unique to one little area that has its own specific soil composition and microclimate.
In this site it is the intention to give some general (and whenever possible more detailed) information on wine making and wines of Tuscany.
