INTERNATIONAL WINE & SPIRIT COMPETITION QUALITY AWARD.
IWSC SILVER 2010 Best in Class.
From the Piccini family's Special Collection, a Supertuscan wine from Italy.
Supertuscan denotes a premium Tuscan wine which uses innovative blends to create a modern expression of this classic Italian region. Marked by aromas of bright cherry, red fruit and black plum which are echoed on the palate with flavours of blackberry and dried herb. The wine is rich, full bodied and velvety with well integrated tannins and a long spicy finish.
Mouth-watering aromas of black cherry, chocolate and plum combine with an elegant finish and typical of its Tuscan origin. This Supertuscan is great with red meat dishes such as lamb and beef as well as pasta with a rich tomato sauce.

Sangiovese, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon
During the winemaking process we seek to achieve balance, elegance, texture and length of flavor. Only the best Sangiovese, Cabernet and Merlot grapes selected during the harvest are used to make this Supertuscan. After each grape variety is fermented separately the wine is then blended by Antonella Conti. This Supertuscan blend was aged for 6 months in oak barriques which gives the wine structure, balanced tannins and complex flavours.
"Super Tuscan" is a generic term used to refer to great wines of Tuscany, labeled under the term "IGT" (Indicazione Geografica Tipica). Prestigious wine producers in Tuscany, confident in their winemaking know-how, decided to break the quality seal (DOC/ DOCG) and make the wines they believed in, using innovative grape blends. Wine lovers, journalists and the international wine trade now praise the quality of these wines. Thus, emerged one of the most renowned and sought after denominations in wine histo
Renaissance wine-makers begun making wine in Tuscany over 600 years ago. The rolling hills of Tuscany are the ideal location for growing grapes and the region is world famous for producing premium quality red wines such as the famous Chianti. This Super Tuscan is part of a modern, new-wave group of wine-makers who create wines that lie outside of the DOC classification because they include international grape varietite such as Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.
This wine can be drunk now but will further improve if carefully stored for up to 4 years
