michaelsgenuine It's #winewednesday & #nationalwineday! Today #sommanager @skillyvanilly is sharing his knowledge about this 2005 Tuscan Bordeaux blend by Tenuta Monteti. "So-called "Super Tuscan" wines arose from the popularization of International grape varietals around Tuscany in the late 1960s, led by pioneering figures such as Marquis Mario Rocchetta and Piero Antinori. In pre-existing delimited regions throughout Tuscany such as Chianti DOC, however, Italian wine law at the time stipulated that red wines labeled as Chianti could be produced from only the indigenous Sangiovese, plus a handful of other local grapes. These labeling laws were meant to indicate a wine's quality for the benefit of the consumer, but ended up causing any wine that broke the rules on grape usage (such as Rocchetta's fabulous Bordeaux-style Cabernet blends) to be given the poorest classification, vino de tavola.

By the mid 1980s some of Tuscany's most prized wines were being released as mere "table wine", which led to an upheaval of sorts and the eventual creation of a new category, IGT, to accommodate wines of superior quality that did not follow traditional DOC rules. It is in this category that we find many of the wines now referred to as "Super Tuscans", though the term itself does not reflect a typicity of style.

From Tenuta Monteti, the 2005 Toscana Rosso is a fine example of the potential for Bordeaux varietals in the hands of Tuscan winemakers. A unique cuvée of 60% Petit Verdot, balanced by Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Alicante, it was bottle-aged at the winery for 10 years and released in 2015. This "Super Tuscan" is delicious and smooth, structured and complex, in its prime for drinking now. A perfect match for the Steak au Poivre and some Okra from the wood oven. At just $84 BTB, the 2005 Monteti is a phenomenal value that any fan of Bordeaux or bold Italian reds will want to savor." #mgfdwine #monteti #tuscany #supertuscan
