We remember the first time we heard the word “Tuscany” was when we were listening to an Italian radio show called “Il Giornale della Luce.” It was a program where they played songs from various artists and talked about their music. One of the songs that came up was from a band named “Tuscany,” which had just released their debut album. They sang about the beauty of Tuscany and the amazing wines produced there.
Popular for its old-world wines, the Chianti region, Montalcino DOC, Carmignano DOCG, Val di Cornia DOCG, Brunello di Montepulciano, and Vin Santo, offer an exceptional view into the natural landscape.
