Tuscany is one of the best wine destinations in the world. In fact, wine is produced in all ten of the region’s provinces. There are 74 DOCG wines in Italy, 11 of which are produced in Tuscany
DOCG (Denominazione di Origine Controllata e Garantita or controlled designation of origin guaranteed) is the highest recognition that can be awarded to a wine. Sangiovese grapes are the very soul of Tuscany. In fact, their fruity, aromatic fragrance is present in almost all of Tuscany’s DOCG red wines.
Think about a great Riserva of Brunello di Montalcino, Chianti Classico, Chianti, Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, Morellino di Scansano, Sangiovese, Montecucco or Val di Cornia.
