Tuscany is within central/western Italy and over the years has managed to reinvent itself as the home of innovative wine making.
Perhaps the best known Italian wine, Chianti, is from the Tuscany region.
There is a Chianti Classico DOCG, a Chianti DOCG and another popular wine, Burnello di Montalcino DOCG.
The main grape used is Sangiovese, which usually produces wines of medium body and slightly spicy, capable of ageing well.
Most Chianti Classico is made from 100% Sangiovese and is produced in two forms, Chianti, for early drinking and Chianti Reserva which is aged in oak and bottle for 36 months or more before it is released.
Brunelo di Montalcino is also made from Sangiovese and is one of the longest ageing wines of the world, rich, wholesome and usually ludicrously expensive.
