From the early 70's some of the winemakers of Tuscany began to experiment with grape varieties not native to Italy such as cabernet sauvignon,sauvignon blanc and chardonnay. In the 80's the Chianti Conzorrzio introduced a set of guidlines as to locations,techniques of cultivation and blends for these wines which had come to be called 'Super Tuscans ' The Cabreo estate is located close to the village of Greve and has 50 hectares called ' Fattoria di Zano ' planted with sangiovese and cabernet sauvignon and another 25 hectares to the south of the village planted with chardonnay.Because the cepagement does not comply with the rules for a DOC or DOCG wine these wines are classified as  Vino Da Tavola Di Toscana or IGT. The Cabreo estate is ownd by the Ruffino House which is well known for Chianti

  • . . . and, boy, are my arms tired.I don't know when I first heard the term "Super Tuscan."  I'm guessing that it was 10-12 years ago.  I really did not know what it meant--me being very focussed on my California world.I did, of course, learn that a Super Tuscan was a wine that was made from grapes that were outside the Tuscany tradition--specifi...

    The nose showed apple and peach with vanilla cream and citrus notes. My mind immediately turned to Friuli as I took in its bouquet. On the palate, it was velvety soft with white fruits that stayed through its long, saturating finish. Read More

  • Cabreo Il Borgo 2006


    Really sour aroma, like rotting fruit. Reminds me of eating week-old human meat, back when I was a zombie. I remember those days fondly, so I'm a bit positive on this. Read More

  • Cabreo Il Borgo 2006


    dark garnet, nearly purple, with a little sediment. middle of the road in body, tannins, and acid. rich vanilla sweet oak scent overpowers some candied red fruit. for me, this needs to be aerated and/or aged. Read More
