In the former, Chianti is definitely the best-known wine, but there are also other denominations such as Brunello di Montalcino and Vino Nobile di Montepulciano.

In both regions, the production of Sangiovese wines is characterized by special attention to the quality of the grapes and the care of the vinification processes, which guarantee the creation of wines of great structure and elegance, appreciated by consumers all over the world.
