Wine from Tuscany, the finest wines in Italy.

Tuscany’s relationship with wine production forms a major part of this region's core identity. There are few countries in the world that have such a deeply ingrained wine-based history as Italy, and winemaking has been part of Tuscan culture for over 3,000 years. The combination of centuries of traditional winemaking, alongside the growing number of modern, innovative approaches and methods, have allowed Tuscany to continue its legacy and cement its reputation as one of the world’s most important wine regions.

Sangiovese is the beating heart of Tuscany and forms the basis of its most popular and famous wines including Chianti and Brunello di Montalcino; it creates wines of bright acidity and resonant bitter cherry characters which can be enjoyed young or aged in oak for a more complex, long-lived wine.

In recent years, we have also seen the rise of ‘Super Tuscans’ producing stars such as Sassicaia and Tignanello from the more coastal Bolgheri region. This appellation benefits from more flexible rules around planting, which allows DOC classified wines to be made from non-indigenous grape varieties – the most popular of which are Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot.
