Toscana's picturesque rolling hills look as good to a grapevine as they do to a tourist. This is prime winemaking country, and over 80% its wine is red.
This is the land of Sangiovese. Several regions have developed their own clones and their own distinct styles of wine from the grape, which makes the world's best pairing for grilled steak, and a fine match for a hearty tomato sauce as well. Leave room for biscotti and vin santo for desert.
