Toscana IGT is the most popular and famous of Italy's Indicazione Geografica Tipica (IGT) titles. It encapsulates the entire region, with the Toscana IGT label permitted on wine produced in any of Tuscany's ten provinces.

It is made with 92% Merlot, a red wine grape variety with strong historic ties to Bordeaux and the southwest of France. It is the predominant variety in most wines from Saint-Émilion and Pomerol, the area in which the variety originated.

The Merlot was picked between the 2nd and the 15th of September.

Vinification is done for up to 4 weeks of temperature-controlled alcoholic fermentation with maceration on the skins in stainless steel tanks. Only indigenous yeasts are used. The malolactic fermentation take place in oak.

Ageing is don for 18 months in French oak barriques.
