Hi Bryan,
Thanks for posting your questions.
Regarding visiting wineries that make super tuscans, the two regions that have a higher concentration and are most famous for super tuscans are the Chianti Classico area and the seaside region of Bolgheri.
Bolgheri has a high concentration of super famous wines such as Sassicaia, Ornellaia, Guado al Tasso, etc. Most of the wineries in this region only receive visitors through the Consorzio. Here's a list of wineries: http://www.bolgheridoc.com/html.aspx?page=aziende.html&id=1519
Chianti Classico also has a range of rather famous Super Tuscan wineries such as Montevertine, Riecine, Isole & Olena. Here's a list of Super Tuscans and their wineries: http://tuscany-wine.com/super_tuscans.htm. Try to contact each winery individually for an appointment.

Hi Rebecca,

The Cepparello by Isole & Olena looks like an interesting wine to try. I tried to find contact information for the Isole & Olena winery on the internet with no success. Do you know if they have a website?

By the way, I met the winemaker Giovanni Folonari a few days ago at a store in Chicago. I purchased a bottle of his Super Tuscan wine (100% Cabernet) called Il Pareto. Have you tried it or visited his winery, Tenuta Di Nozzole?

.............Bryan

As to Isole & Olena: the winery doesn't advertise much for visitors and is not set up for tourists. But it will receive people who are interested in buying their wines there. I haven't been able to find a web-site either so my conclusion is that they are not interested in having one? Anyway, the email is: isolena@tin.it so maybe try an email first, if not just stop by one day within Italian office hours.

Tenuta di Nozzole definitely produces a great Super Tuscan. You will find it easier to approach: http://www.tenutefolonari.com/contatti.aspx?posizione=contatti

Take care.

Hi Bryan,
Isn't it funny that today I toured a lovely couple from Texas and they told me that they had met you in Venice a couple of days ago at a restaurant. What a small world! So cool lol!

Hope you'll post a comment on how your trip went on the forum.
Best,
Rebecca

Super-Tuscans, once among the world’s most sought-after wines, have fallen out of fashion. Lettie Teague investigates why, and searches out the timeless bottlings.


Italy has some amazing wines but the wines from Tuscany maybe the most talked about and sought after here in the United States. Gary Vaynerchuk jumps in and tastes 4 Tuscan blends and adds his 2 cents!
