The Must Know Regions of Tuscan Wine Making
Most wine lover’s know that Sangiovese is the grape of Tuscany. These three regions take Sangiovese and make wines that can seem similar but are unique in their own way.
Chianti wines are characterised in their youth by their predominantly floral and cinnamon spicy bouquet. As the wine ages, aromas of tobacco and leather can emerge. Chiantis tend to have medium-high acidity and medium tannins.
Vino Nobile di Montepulciano
Known for its medium body, firm tannins, and for the acidity that makes it a particularly age worthy wine. It is characterized by its dark cherry and rich plum aromas, ripe strawberry and cherry fruit flavors, and a gently tannic “tea-leaf” finish.
Brunello di Montalcino
Brunello di Montalcino are some of Italy’s best-known and most expensive wines. Brunello is often compared with the Pinot noir wines of Burgundy with its smooth tannins and ripe, fruit driven character. The high acidity of the wine allows it to pair well with food, especially grilled meat and game.
