Suvereto DOCG red wine-only denomination from the township of Suvereto in the southern part of Livorno province in Tuscany. The DOCG was granted from the 2012 vintage onwards. Previously Suvereto had been part of the Val di Cornia DOC which makes wines of all three colours from 7 townships (Suvereto, Sassetta, Piombino, San Vincenzo, Campiglia Marittima and Monteverdi Marittimo) and dates from 1989. Because Suvereto’s red wines were deemed distinctive from 2001-2011 ‘Suvereto’ was allowed to appear next to the Val di Cornia DOC title on labels. Being located 20 miles south of Bolgheri (of Sassicaia and Ornellaia fame) means the emphasis here is very much on SuperTuscan style, Bordeaux-influenced blends.
Red wines | Suvereto DOCG red wines are made from Sangiovese, Cabernet and Merlot. Wines labelled Suvereto Sangiovese, Suvereto Merlot and Suvereto Cabernet Sauvignon are made from 85-100% of the variety named on the label, plus an optional 0-15% Sangiovese, Cabernet and Merlot.
