There are many ways to build a Super Tuscan, but when the heart of the wine is Sangiovese, you can't go wrong. Sangiovese (sourced from three of the Tenuta di Burchino's premier vineyards in the Pisan Hills) makes up 85% of the blend, while a seasoning of Cabernet and Merlot adds just enough volume and depth to flesh out to the iconic Tuscan grape's rustic earthiness. Impressive and classic Super Tuscan at an unbeatable price!

"Blueberry and light flower aromas follow through to a full to medium body with a cola, berry and light chocolate undertone. Very long. Gorgeous."

Vinification and Refinement
Our Toscana “Il Burchino” is produced with the grapes from San Martino, Poggiarelli and Boccanera vineyards, carefully selected and vinified at controlled temperature to maintain all the aromas and the great minerality that distinguishes all wines from Burchino Estate. It is a complex wine, with intense deepness on the nose that develops a soft mouth feel where the best characteristics of Cabernet and Merlot from Tuscany find space together with the classic Sangiovese notes. Hand-picked grapes are immediately fermented in the modern cellars of Burchino. A prolonged maceration with the skins gives to the wine complex aromas and a fruity scent. The ageing takes place 12 months in French oak barrels by 225 Litres. The wine is refined in bottle for a further period.
