 Chianti and its own Sub Regions

In Tuscany the Sangiovese grape is unconquered, and many wines originate from the variety that in these lands find a particular vocation. For many Italians and foreigners, Tuscany is synonymous with sweet and soft hills with timeless charm, so famous for their landscape, but also for the production of excellent wine: Chianti, divided into seven specific sub-regions:

Chianti Rufina (east of Florence, suitable for long aging)
Chianti Colli Aretini (Hills of Arezzo)
Chianti Colli Fiorentini (Hills of Florence)
Chianti Colli Senesi (around San Gimignano)
Chianti Colline Pisane (Hills of Pisa)
Chianti Montalbano (northwest of Florence)
Chianti Montespertoli (southwest of San Casciano in Val di Pesa)

Chianti Classico

Chianti Classico DOCG is an outstanding wine, obtained from 80-100% of Sangiovese grapes, aged in large or small oak barrels, able to grow older than ten years. It can be of two types: Reserve or Grand Selezione.

Brunello di Montalcino

Another famous Tuscan wine worldwide is the Brunello di Montalcino DOCG, cultivated right at Montalcino, in the heart of southern Tuscany. Relatively lighter is the "younger brother" of Brunello, the Rosso di Montalcino DOC, less flavored with lower refinement.

Nobile di Montepulciano

To the east of Montalcino, beyond the Chianti, we find the Nobile Wine of Montepulciano DOCG always obtained from 70% Sangiovese grapes, here called Prugnolo Gentile, and other international grapes, characterized by slightly drier tannins, powerful and less fresh aromas. As with Brunello, there is a softer version, that is, the Rosso di Montepulciano, which predicts lower aging than the Nobile Wine of Montepulciano.

SuperTuscan Bolgheri

Among the red wines of Tuscany, it is worth mentioning the great reds of Bolgheri. The phenomenon linked to the "Super Tuscan Wines" has certainly influenced the image of Tuscan wines in the world positively, emphasizing the land, on the vine, but above all on human intuition and creativity. The grapes involved are not Sangiovese, but rather international grapes such as Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc, cultivated between the lands of Bolgheri and still in rapid evolution. The wines of Bolgheri DOC and Bolgheri Sassicaia DOC are all considered to be the pride of Tuscan winery production, among which the most important are: Sassicaia, Tignanello, Solaia, and Ornellaia.

Others

Another very appreciated wine produced near the south of the Bolgheri area in the Maremma Grossetana is the Morellino di Scansano DOCG, obtained from Sangiovese grapes, with a dry, warm and slightly tannic flavor. Last stop in the province of Prato, instead, the Carmignano DOCG, another wine with Sangiovese grapes.
