About the Wine
"Super Tuscans" are anarchic and revolutionary wines, wines that are not following the traditional winemaking in the region’s DOC and DOCG. Instead of using the classic grape of the region: Sangiovese, these wines are mainly made with grapes used for “Bordeaux Blends”, Cabernet Sauvignon, and/or Merlot. In some cases, Super Tuscans are even better than DOC and DOCG wines, but because of their “rebellion” they have to be classified in lower categories such as "Vino da Tavola" or "Indicazione Geografica Tipica" (IGT).
Andrea Bernardini is a passionate consultant winemaker who has hit numerous home runs. He graduated from Pisa, one of the best schools of oenology in Italy, in 2007. He earned his chops at Poggio Bonelli and Ruffino in Tuscany and trained in South Africa, Romania and Greece. After several years of experiences, he is now a flying winemaker blending tradition and modern techniques to obtain high-quality wines with respect to the expression of the different grapes and terroir in which he works.
