On Super Tuscans

Giovanni speaks in more depth about his mid-range wines, in particular his Campo al Mare from Bolgheri and how and why it contrasts with Chianti. He shares some fascinating details about the conditions in Bolgheri, too.

We have a little fun with the idea that Italian wines tend be higher than average in acidity and whether that might be terroir or viticultural and winemaking influences. Giovanni discusses the issue of acidity with refreshing candor and detail.

This segment wraps up with a lively discussion on super Tuscans and their history. All before we even begin to discuss Il Cabreo, the Folonari family's iconic super Tuscan blend.
