A toast to Tuscany, the home to Italy’s most famous wines. The Sangiovese grapes blend to make world-famous bottles of ruby red wine: Chianti. Nestled between the cities of Florence and Siena, the Chianti Classico is the historical heartland of red wines around the world. Hardly a meal is skipped without a glass of this dry red wine – and as it hails from Tuscany you can bet it pairs perfectly with pasta, pizza and other Italian staples.
