Tuscany is the most important wine region in Italy as well as one of the most renowned wine regions in the world. Its name comes from the name – Eturia – the Greeks and Romans gave to the land at that time inhabited by the Etruscan. Wines from 29 different designations of origin and 7 different certified and guaranteed designations of origin are produced there. Among its wines, we must highlight Chianti Classico and Vin Santo, both available in Dievole’s winery, as well as Brunello di Montalcino or Nobile de Montepulciano. The majority of them are elaborated with sangiovese grapes. That is why this variety is considered as the queen of the centre of Italy. Cereals, potatoes and olives are also grown in the Tuscan fields. In fact, the region is also an important producer of extra virgin olive oil, a product that you can purchase in Dievole. On the other hand, Tuscany is one of the most popular destinations in Italy, thanks to its historical, cultural and artistic heritage.
