Is Eduardo Viotti (Leaf Collection World Wine) definition as follows: "They are some of the most renowned wines of Italy. Are also the result of the rebellion of men who stood up against the rigidity of the DOC laws that prevented them from making the best wines of Italy, and certainly some of the most important wines of the world. Indeed, competition from traditional Italian wines to the great wines of the New World, where all oenological adventure was possible, it was getting difficult in terms of quality - with Italy losing ground and having to distill hectoliters of wine. In addition to competing face to face in international markets, the proud Tuscan winemakers also wanted to prove to be able to draw on its terroir, wonders net as good as those - and as sophisticated as the best wines of the eternal French rival. Part of this idea stems from the European conception according to which both no matter the grape that wine is made, but where it comes from. The solution was to give up the use of DOC wine and elaborate on how well they pleased, using only an indication Vino di Tavola or IGT - Typical Geographical Indication, maximum. The style is not the only bordalês adopted by supertoscanos but rather, it is today a minority. Most proud and rich modern Tuscan winemakers make wine Sangiovese own special place in pure or cut with other red varieties. Finally, the fact is that almost all large producers of Chianti region today have their supertoscano. Also, have a supertoscano helps sell Chianti, by the force of good name. "
