Super Tuscan wine tour in a nutshell

This private day tour from Florence is designed to take private parties to some of the best small wineries producing so-called Supertuscan wines from special blends of international grape varieties such as Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.

 

Wine tour destination

The category of so-called Super-Tuscan wines is a completely unofficial category. Supertuscan is not a wine zone like Chianti or Montalcino. Rather, it is a new style of Tuscan wine that some wineries started to make here in Tuscany at the end of the 1960s. The tour covers a selection of my favorite Super Tuscan wineries among Isole e Olena, Montevertine, I Balzini, Querciabella, Vecchie Terre di Montefili, and La Massa.

 

Tuscan wine tastings

Super-Tuscan wines are expensive (50/100 Euros per bottle and up), small-scale-production, international-styled blends, usually made from non-native grape varieties that are not traditional in Tuscany. The most typical blend is Cabernet and Merlot, but there are some Super-Tuscan wine types that incorporate other French grapes such as Syrah or Petit Verdot.

 

This tour is recommended for...

Curious wine lovers who want to learn what Tuscany's winemakers are experimenting with.

 

Supertuscan & Chianti tour highlights

I prefer to take my guests to small, hand-picked wineries around Florence, where they can taste these special blends as well as enjoy the beautiful countryside from the comfort of a luxury minivan.
