Welcome in Italy. I love Italy, where you can find so many great quality wines at really good prices… with 20 regions the variety of Italian wines is so wide that in my opinion you need your entire life to taste them all! With someone who lives here you’ll find it easier to get the right tips and the best directions to go through them, in big and known wineries as well as really small producers with not less quality than the famous ones. Piedmont & Tuscany are the regions with the highest number of Italian DOCG ( Denomination of Origin Controlled and Guaranteed) wines; Tuscany features 11 DOCG, among which are the world famous Brunello di Montalcino, Chianti and Chianti Classico, Nobile di Montepulciano and Vernaccia di San Gimignano. To be honest I can write and say a lot about this, but for sure it is not the same if you touch and see with me the immense beauty of Tuscany. Try its tastiest food & wine, and live memorable moments full of fun, with amazing views of green hills covered with vineyards, olive groves, cypress trees and gold sunflower fields below.

Wanna have some useful tips about Tuscan wines and hear about the true story of Chianti? The borderline between the two most famous and biggest Chianti regions, those of Siena and Florence, was defined in a funny way: it was decided that a knight should leave each city on the appointed day as soon as the rooster crew, and the place where the knights met along the way should become the new border. Each knight thought to outsmart the other one, the Florentine one by not feeding his black rooster, while the Siena knight fed it too much, thus meaning that the Florentine rooster started to crow at the first light because it was starving, while the Siena rooster slept too much because it had a full stomach! For this reason they met 15 km north of Siena! This is why Chianti Classico is labelled with a black rooster at the top. Just to say that even in this occasion Florence won over Siena, by the way both cities are spectacular masterpieces of Italian beauty. It is amazing how wine can be funny even telling old stories about it. Any time I tell this I can’t help laughing a lot. There are a lot of famous wines in Tuscany so don’t miss the chance! Book one of my guided wine tours in ancient and scenic Chianti wineries and you will find the authentic great Sangiovese-based wine this region is so famous for!
