Editor note: Translate to English Ganz leicht tabakiger und altholziger Duft nach roten und etwas schwarzen Beeren, Granatapfel und ein wenig Kirschen mit tabakigen und an Kreuzkümmel erinnernden Noten. Relativ herbe Frucht mit harzig-holzigen und unterholzigen Noten, leichter Säurebiss und sandiges, etwas trocknendes Tannin, ein Hauch Kakao und Zimt, leicht kreidige Textur am Gaumen, gewisse Kraft und Nachhaltigkeit, ganz leicht gedeckt, gewürzige Aromen, heller Tabak, angedeutet Salz, guter bis sehr guter Abgang mit an getrocknete Tomaten erinnernden Noten.

DOC area for red wine and rosé in the Italian region of Tuscany. The Vin Santo di Carmignano (or Vin Santo di Carmignano Occhio di Pernice), which was included until 2013, was classified as a separate DOC area. The DOC area Rosato di Carmignano, which was independent until 2013, was merged into Barco Reale di Carmignano. The zone covers nine hectares of vineyards in the two municipalities of Carmignano and Poggio a Caiano in the province of Prato and is identical to that of the Carmignano DOCG area. The wine types Rosso and Rosato are blended from Sangiovese (max. 50%), Canaiolo Nero (max. 20%),...

The region with the capital Florence is located in the centre of Italy on the Ligurian coast; it also includes the third largest Italian island Elba. It borders Liguria and Emilia-Romagna to the north, Marche and Umbria to the east and Lazio to the south. Besides Piedmont, Tuscany is probably the most famous Italian wine-growing region and also one of the most beautiful areas of the country in terms of landscape. Long before the Romans, the Etruscans were already cultivating wine here, making it one of the oldest wine-growing regions in Europe. In ancient times, the area formed...

Italy is one of the oldest wine-growing countries, with origins dating back at least to 1,000 BC. At that time, the Etruscans appeared in central Italy and settled areas of the four present-day regions of Abruzzo, Lazio, Tuscany and Umbria. The origin of Italian wine culture lies primarily in Greek colonisation, which brought Greek viticultural culture to the peninsula beginning in the 10th century BC on the island of Sicily as well as Campania and Calabria. The Greeks brought many of their grape varieties with them and named the land ideal for...
