Tuscany

Tuscany brands

Tuscany is home to the Chianti region which is the most famous region for Sangiovese and is responsible for 17% of DOC production.

When Sangiovese became the required major grape in Chianti during the 1970s.

the other noble grapes (Cab and Merlot) ended up creating a new style of wine: Super Tuscan.

For white wines in this region,

keep in mind that Trebbiano is Italy’s most produced white grape and Vermentino has quite a few taste similarities to Sauvignon Blanc.
