Located in central Italy along the Tyrrhenian coast, Tuscany is home to some of the world's most notable wine regions. Chianti, Brunello di Montalcino, Montecucco and Vino Nobile di Montepulciano are primarily made with Sangiovese grape whereas the Vernaccia grape is the basis of the white Vernaccia di San Gimignano.
Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, wine among the vines. Vino Nobile di Montepulciano is one of the most famous and culturally significant wines in Tuscany, a region famous for its wine-making prowess. It is not to be confused with the Montepulciano grape variety which is used throughout many regions of Italy and is used to make wines such as Montepulciano d’Abruzzo.
At Col d'Orcia we still pick all our brunello di montalcino grapes by hand. In August 2013 Col D'Orcia became the largest organic wine producer in Tuscany. See more at http://www.poderesantapia.com/engels/winesorganic.htm
