Tuscany has been a center of winemaking on the Italian peninsula since the Roman Republic. Between the Tuscan towns of Sienna and Florence, some of history’s greatest wines have been made. In fact, some of these vineyards date back to at least the 11th Century.
A lot has changed in the past 10 centuries of winemaking, and even more has changed in the past few decades. The rise of one specific type of wine since the 90’s has shifted the landscape of Italian wine more than any other: the Super Tuscan.
