La Costa degli Etruschi is the coastline that goes from Livorno to Piombino. Here the Italian wine revolution started and today you can find some of the best wines of the world. Back in the 1970s, Tuscan wine producers began to experiment with foreign grape varietals such as Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. From these with the Sangiovese grosso grape, they created some revolutionary wine, known as Super Tuscans.
Travelling from Campiglia Marittima to Suvereto you'll find the pulsing heart of the famous Val di Cornia DOCG wine, a red wine made from at least 40% Sangiovese, and a max 60% of Cabernet Sauvignon or/and Merlot and the Suvereto DOCG, which could be made of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot or Sangiovese from 85% to 100%. Arriving in Bolgheri you can visit some wine shops with a wide selection of Bolgheri DOC labels (white and reds), but also the famous Sassicaia, Ornellaia and Masseto. Enjoy the beautiful scenery offered by the nature surrounding the estates and discover how these wines are made. Book your wine tour here.
