Steeped in the romance of endless rolling hills, picturesque hilltop villages and cobble country roads, it’s undeniably gorgeous and produces some excellent wine to boot! It also happens to be one of the most prolific wine regions throughout not only Italy, but Europe. Toast your Tuscan tour with an iconic Chianti, or push out the boat and splurge on a slightly more expensive Brunello di Montalcino.

Italy’s champion red variety, Sangiovese, goes by many names. You’ve probably heard of a few of them.
