Tuscany has a long wine history, which can be traced back as far as the fifth century BC. Tuscany is the most enduringly famous of all Italian wine regions, thanks to the romantic glamor of its endless rolling hills and hilltop villages. Its reputation is founded on iconic wines such as Chianti, Brunello di Montalcino and Vino Nobile di Montepulciano. In the 1970s, a new class of wines known in the trade as "Super Tuscans" emerged. These wines were made outside DOC/DOCG regulations but were considered of high quality and commanded high prices, and many of these later became cult wines.
