Tuscany

Tuscany is undoubtedly one of the Italian regions synonymous with wines of the highest quality. Tuscan viticulture is practiced mainly in hilly areas, where the vine finds its perfect environment.

Tuscan wine history dates back to the Middle Ages. The Medici in 1430 made Florence the center of the Renaissance, in that century the Tuscan vineyard of Chianti began to be delimited.
Tuscany is known above all for its famous red wines : Chianti Classico, Brunello di Montalcino and Vino Nobile di Montepulciano. The queen variety is Sangiovese , although we can find international grapes such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Some Tuscan white wines, such as Vernaccia di San Gimignano, must also be counted among the excellence of the region alongside the sweet raisined wine Vin Santo.
