This beautiful, coastal region south of Pisa is best known for the stellar success (and astronomical prices) of its Ornellaia and Sassicaia varietals. Barely 30 years old, these “Super Tuscans” are modeled on Bordeaux blends; most are made with Merlot, Cabernet and, Syrah grapes, and are known for their marvelous perfume as well as flavors. They’re über trendy—and justifiably so.
