Super Tuscan: Wines from Tuscany made in ways that do not conform to traditional winemaking practices in the region's DOCs and DOCGs. Often this means they are made with international varieties such as Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot rather than relying primarily on local varieties such as Sangiovese. Although their quality can be outstanding, these wines must be labeled with the lower levels of Italy’s classification system, vino da tavola or Indicazione Geografica Tipica.
