About This Wine
Sometimes a vicarious adventure is just as satisfying as being there.
Tuscany is one of the “must-see” destinations for wine lovers. From Sassicaia to Chianti, the wines are stellar. And “scenic” doesn’t even begin to describe the rolling hills that provide the perfect backdrop for the Tuscan vineyards.
If you don’t have time to head to the countryside, however, you can still sample Tuscany’s best wines in nearby cities, including Florence and Siena. Local wines can be found in bars and restaurants, of course, but the best place to savor the gifts of the grapes is an enoteca — an Italian wine bar that showcases a few light dishes and a long list of wines to sample.
But if Tuscany isn’t on your “to visit” list anytime soon, no worries. The Montesenese “San Pietro in Avenano” Toscana Rosso, crafted in the hills above Siena, provides a classic taste of Tuscany — no passport needed.
