TuscanyOnce internationally ill reputed for producing an ocean of mediocre red wine, Tuscany has regained its place in the sun by focusing on quality rather than quantity. Red wine grapes, particularly Sangiovese, dominate Tuscany’s rolling hills. Sangiovese is the primary grape in the two most famous Tuscan wines: Chianti and Brunello di Montalcino. Cabernet Sauvignon also prospers in Tuscany, where it is blended with Sangiovese to produce sensational "Super Tuscans" like Sassicaia and Tignanello. View all our items from Tuscany
ItalyAs the world’s top wine-exporter, Italy is an important wine region both because of the amount and quality of wines produced. Just two grapes—Nebbiolo and Sangiovese—are used to make some of the finest Italian wines, including Barolo, Brunello de Montalcino and Chianti. Still, Italy is home to dozens of wine grape varieties, with important wines being made from Corvina, Barbera, Cortese, Moscato and traditionally French varietals. The major wine regions include Piedmont, Tuscany, Emilia-Romagna, Veneto, Campania and others. Most producers follow the government-regulated DOC classification system, with a few notable exceptions including the esteemed “Super Tuscan” producers. View all our items from Italy
