Tuscan wines are among the finest and most appreciated on the international scene: Bolgheri, Brunello di Montalcino, Chianti, Nobile di Montepulciano and other names, together with brands such as Sassicaia, Tignanello, Solaia, Ornellaia and Masseto, are names that suffice to define this region as a genuine treasure chest of enological gems. Famous mainly for its red wines, the region is also appreciated for its expressive whites with a long tradition, such as Vernaccia di San Gimignano, and for sweet passito wines such as Vin Santo or Aleatico dell'Elba. In Tuscany there are more than a dozen DOCG, about forty DOC and some IGT wines. In the vast regional production, the robust and important red wines that have earned the name Super Tuscan stand out all over the world. Small medieval villages of extreme beauty, gentle hills caressed by the sea breeze and a wine history that goes back to the Etruscans make this region one of the largest, most important and famous wine regions in the world.
