Vineyards, olive groves, pine forests, small clusters of towering cypress trees on the tops of gently rolling hills - the beauty of Tuscany has a magical appeal and lingers for a long time. It is certainly no coincidence that some of the world' s finest wines are produced here.
From Chianti and other cult wines of Tuscany
Italian wine as a souvenir - the popular bulbous and straw-woven Chianti bottles are the epitome of this, and as candleholders they are said to evoke southern flair. Besides Piedmont, Tuscany is Italy's most famous wine region and home to many excellent wines, including the pure Brunello di Montalcino, fresh Vernaccia di San Gimignano and classic dessert wines such as Vin Santo di Carmignano.
