The Oddbins Take

Back in the 1970s, the vineyards of North Western Italy were dangerous places. Gangs of Sangiovese were engaged in racketeering across all of Chianti and Brunello; ripping up rootstock of anything that didn't have a DOCG status. Most vines lived in fear but it is always darkest before the dawn. Where the wine police could not help, a caped crusader came to the aid of ordinary grapes. Some called him vigilantly, others called him hero but most called him Super Tuscan. To this day he protects the right to make high quality wines in Tuscany without it being Sangiovese dominant, not the hero we asked for but the hero we deserved... Le Volte is a Super Tuscan, only Alfred knows.
