Perhaps the most recognised region of Italy when it comes to wine, Tuscany is home to some of the world’s oldest wineries and boasts a barnstorming collection of some of the most-loved wines on the planet. It is suggested that the Sangiovese grape – the signature grape of the Tuscany wine region – used to grow in the wild here as far back as the 4th century B.C., but the undulating green hills and Mediterranean climate make this area of Italy ripe for growing many kinds of grapes, including international varieties. Perhaps best known for the big bold reds of Brunello di Montalcino, Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, and Chianti made from Sangiovese along with the Super Tuscan blends, Tuscany wine offers rich flavours and high quality in almost all of the wines from the region.
