Wine of Toscana appellation
Tuscany is a great wine region both in terms of the extent of its vineyards and the reputation of the wines it produces. Located in the centre of Italy, along the Tyrrhenian coast, Tuscany boasts over forty DOCs (Denominazioni di Origine Controllata) and over a dozen of DOCGs (Denominazione di Origine Controllata e Garantita), which are among the best known in the country and include names such as Chianti, Carmignano and Brunello di Montalcino. 

The climate of Tuscany is, of course, Mediterranean. However, the area is very hilly and the heat of the Tuscan summers is offset by the high altitude of the vineyards. The wide variation in temperatures created by the altitude helps ensure that the aromas, sugar and acidity in the grapes are well balanced. These conditions generally suit the Sangiovese, the region’s typical grape variety, and particularly when it is planted on one of Tuscany’s sun-drenched hillsides. The wines of Tuscany are also produced from many other international or Italy-specific varietals such as Malvasia Nera or Mammolo for the red wine and Trebbiano, Malvasia, Vermentino and Vernaccia for the white wine. 

In addition to the wines with a DOC/DOCG, another unofficial category of wines emerged in the 1970’s. These wines, known as the "Super Tuscans", rejected the official classification criteria in order to gain more flexibility in terms of production. This flexibility has resulted in a diversification of the wines produced in the region. Many of these "Super Tuscan" wines are recognized internationally and these include some of the red wines produced by Duemani.
