Tuscany

Tuscany

Tuscany is Italy’s 4thlargest region for vineyards, but its 6thlargest producer for wines showing that here there is a mission for quality over quantity. You still have to choose very carefully, but there is a great amount of very fine wine produced here. Sangiovese is the dominant black variety, but this is the homeland of innovation, with many producers looking to international varieties of Cabernet and Merlot and the like to broaden their appeal in the international market. At least that was the story from the 1960s through to the late nineties: now there is much more interest in authentic styles with Sangiovese at long last receiving the attention that it deserves. This variety reaches its summit with the wines of Brunello di Montalcino and Chianti Classico.
