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...

DO area on the Mediterranean coast Costa Blanca (white coast) in the Spanish region Valencia. About 75 kilometres northeast of Alicante, on the Dénia peninsula, there is the later attached subzone La Marina Alta, where mainly sweet wines are produced. The vineyards of the subzone Alicante Clásico are located on a smaller scale around the port city of Alicante, but four-fifths of them are inland at an altitude of 500 to 650 metres above sea level. The vineyards cover about 14,500 hectares of vineyards on mostly dark limestone soils with a low percentage of clay. The climate, which is mild in summer and winter, is humid and Mediterranean near the...

The red grape variety originates from Italy. Synonyms are Albana Nera, Aleatico di Spagna, Brunellone, Canaiolo Romano, Ciliegino, Ciliegiolo di Spagna, Ciliegiolo Nero, Ciliegiona Nera, Ciliegioulo Nero, Ciliegiulo, Ciliegiuolo, Ciligiolo Nero, Criminese, Mazzèse, Riminese, Riminese ad Uva Rossa, Riminese di Color di Potercole, Riminese Noire, Sangiovese Polveroso and Sangiovese Polveroso Bonechi. The variety was first mentioned in Tuscany towards the end of the 16th century by the Italian agronomist Giovanni Soderini (1526-1596) as Ciriegiuolo Dolce. This (and so far unproven relations to Spanish varieties) also refutes the hypothesis that...
