Most Popular Tuscan Areas for Wine Tasting

The Chianti area encompasses the provinces of Florence, Sienna, and Arezzo. The Chianti Classico area spans between Siena and Florence. The difference in the wine varieties that originate from these areas lies in their grapes. While Chianti is a mixture of Sangiovese, Merlot, and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes, the Chianti Classico is a purer wine with 100% Sangiovese grapes.

The Val D’Orcia area is in the south of Tuscany, and that’s where the well-known Brunello di Montalcino is produced. Brunello di Montalcino is with 100% Sangiovese grapes. In between tastings, you can stop in Montalcino, Montepulciano, Pienza, Cortona, and more little towns.
