Only a few years ago, the popularity of Super Tuscans was sinking, Chianti Classico was struggling with its identity, and Montalcino was considered a great wine but not a great value. However, all of that has changed in only a short time. Suddenly the category of Super Tuscan had risen from the ashes, driven by a market that longed for Cabernet, Cabernet Franc and Merlot with a Tuscan fl air, but also wanted to experience the heights that Sangiovese could reach in its pure varietal form. Next, seemingly out of nowhere, the new vintages of Chianti Classico showed us all that the hard work and rethinking of the region and its terroir has paid off dramatically. Lastly, Montalcino gave us a vintage that they could be proud of, as the 2013s hit the market and reassured collectors that Brunello is indeed World Class.
