Tuscan wine is the Italian wine from the Tuscan region. Located in central Italy, along the Tyrrhenian coast, Tuscany is home to some of the most notable wine regions in the world. Chianti, Brunello di Montalcino and Vino Nobile di Montepulciano are made mainly with the Sangiovese grape, while the Vernaccia grape is the base of the white Vernaccia di San Gimignano.
In the 1970s, a new class of wines known in the trade as "Super Tuscans" emerged. These wines were produced outside the DOC / DOCG regulations, but were considered to be of high quality and demanded high prices. Many of these wines have become cult wines.
