Toscana igt

Actually, the quality proofs for Italian wines are strictly hierarchical and regulated in the Italian wine law. The higher the certification, the greater the requirements, such as grape varieties, type of ageing or duration of ageing. However, resourceful producers who want to go a different way with their wine may fall outside the DOC or DOCG guidelines. What happens? Extraordinary wines are created, but which "only" carry an IGT label on the bottle. A good example of this are the so-called Supertoscans. The renowned wine journalist Robert Parker coined this term in the 1970s because he thought that the outstanding quality of these wines needed a category of its own. Mind you: it is an unofficial category. Some producers wanted to escape the tight corset of Chianti Classico and created wines with more international leanings: ageing in barriques, for example, or using international grape varieties similar to Bordeaux. As a result they fell out of the traditional scheme and could not be certified in any other category than table wine. The creation of the IGT category in 1992 was also one of the reasons for being able to upgrade these wines somewhat. Today, the term "Supertuscans" has become established as a collective term for high quality wines from Tuscany, which cultivate an internationally accepted wine style. They are often something like the signature of the house. This also shows the difficulty in dealing with them: they pose a problem for the marketing of Chianti Classico, because at the top of the price and quality hierarchy of many Chianti wineries is not a protected quality wine, but an IGT wine.
