Tuscany is home to the some of the world’s most notable red wines: Chianti, Brunello di Montalcino, Vino Noble di Montepulciano and Super Tuscan (Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc). But there are also dry white wines such as Vernaccia di San Gimignano, Vermentino and sweet wines like Vin Santo (pairing with cantucci biscuits) and Red Elba Aleatico Passito.
