Today, the wine landscape of Italy is reaping the benefits of change. A new generation of winemakers are bringing energy and innovation to complement the knowledge and experience of their forebears.
So we thought it was time to highlight this reinvigorated Italy. Loosely inspired by the SuperTuscans – those wines that side-stepped Tuscan traditions and regulations five decades ago to forge a new path for quality-minded producers – our concept of the ‘new Super-Italian’ is to group together wines from across Italy that merit attention for their forward-looking, even groundbreaking philosophies.
These new Super-Italians are not only excellent wines in their own right, they represent the best that the future of Italian winemaking has to offer.
