These bold, flavour-packed contemporary reds have made wine lovers re-evaluate the traditional wines of Italy's best-known region. Whether based on Sangiovese or Cabernet Sauvignon blends, Super Tuscans deliver the unique flavours of traditional vineyards in a surprisingly new way. Once scorned as mere vino da tavola because they defied DOCG regulations, these wines are now the most sought-after by collectors around the world. This year's VIP tasting will feature five of the most famous Super Tuscans:
