INTRODUCTION: CLASS 3
In the early 1970s, hoping to reinvigorate Tuscany's often anemic wines, Tuscan producers looked abroad for inspiration. They began using international varieties and techniques while planting vineyards in new areas such as Bolgheri.
The results included many outstanding wines. These successes encouraged winemakers to reevaluate their own traditions, raising the quality of Sangiovese-based wines to new heights.
Today, the Maremma makes many of Italy's top wines from international varieties. And outstanding Super Tuscans are produced throughout Tuscany.
