Tuscany , the country  of Brunello di Montalcino and Chianti

Tuscany continues to advance its position as the most dynamic region as a producer of quality wines in the country, in contrast to the decades of sales of the popular Chianti in fiasco covered raffia-. The modern Renaissance began in Tuscany in Chianti precisely in the central hills around Florence and Siena, but quickly spread to the Mediterranean coast, where it had not yet been identified places to create new vineyards. Most of the progress has come with classical reds based on local Sangiovese, such as Chianti, Brunello di Montalcino, Vino Nobile di Montepulciano and Carmignano DOCG. But growing success with other reds (especially without Appellation wines called Super Tuscans) was increased with new styles of whites that have further enhanced the reputation of the region. The Chianti, which is still the dominant force in wine growing in Tuscany, the area has long distinguished itself as the cradle of Italian wines. This is related both to the volume of wine products and their universality, and also for their personality that can not be questioned. The nature of the Tuscan wines, very different is the quintessence of Italy. Chianti is produced in eight distinct zones covering a wide area around the original core of Chianti Classico. In these hills beautifully harsh climatic variations and soil contribute much to the individuality of each field that the search of the winemakers to develop personal styles. Some Chianti are pretty cool and easy, while others are rich and elaborate and can develop high-class older. All this can lead to some confusion, but for fans the Chianti wine today is probably the one offering the best value for money on domestic and international markets. The origins of white wine are more difficult to track down historically compared to those of red wine. The first evidence of the cultivation of white grape vines date back to the time of Sumer. But the Egyptians were to anticipate the modern winemaking. From the banks of the Nile in the time the vine arrived in Greece and just the Greeks imported it in Italy which they called "Enotria". At the time of Athens greek wine was almost always white, sweet and very rich in alcohol, but do not know the nature of the vines nor the mode of transformation of grapes into wine Romans intensified cultivation of the vine which was spread to every corner of 'empire. Legend has it that even some types of white wine were made from black grapes, this was done by the separation of the skins from the must before fermentation. There are many references to Roman writers including Pliny the Elder mentions that grapes grown in the region of Arezzo, describing the quality of the grapes. During the Middle Ages it was mainly produced from white grapes Trebbiano and Vernaccia. At the time of Dante Alighieri , white wine was considered a most valuable product because of its greater sophistication than the red wine in respect of which the white wine had a lower alcohol content. Renaissance proliferated in white wines and found even the first important work of cataloging by Castor Durante. Today, modern Oenology, become a real professional art , he has been able to exploit the properties of the various types of grapes and allows the production of great white wines that have nothing to envy to the most renowned red wines The white wines are pale yellow color that can also be golden or amber, as in the typical varietals. The scents that can be appreciated are very variable in the different types. More fruity in white and Vermentino, taking the most delicate tones in Chardonnay and Sauvignon. These wines are usually quite dry White wines can be combined with a wide range of dishes. we could choose between starters egg with seafood salads. Chardonnay for the dishes mentioned are those delicate, seafood appetizers and fish with light sauces. For the Vermentino instead pairs are broader and involve crustaceans, molluscs but also meat and chicken and fresh cheeses, or a delicate taste. Sauvignon requires more decisive and aromatic dishes Vermentino Vermentino is one of the favorite Italian wines, the classic summer wine, because it is usually fresh and straight, and very easy to drink (although there are very complex). The latter, in the field Act is pure white and very digestible, simple and easy, characterized by a yellow-green suit, yellow apple, white flower, hazelnut and herbs (rosemary, thyme). Very nice fresh, tasty and flavorful, dry and light. In Italy, the vine is everywhere, from the north to the southern limit of the Italian soil, namely, from the snow and cold of the Alps to the hot sun of the islands. On the other hand, Italians are very proud of their vineyards "Asked Blanc" (the typical white grape variety native to the Valle d'Aosta, the smallest of the Italian regions, in the northwest corner of Italy), which in addition 1000 meters above sea level, are the highest in Europe. And although there are famous Italian wines produced in Lampedusa, the beautiful island visited by tourists from all over the world is the territory to the south Italy, one of the most famous Italian wines is still the Passito di Pantelleria, produced on the island of the same name , which is geographically closer to Africa than the rest of Italy. The best known wine d 'Italy is the red wine. If the greatest Italian wines, Barolo Barbaresco, Brunello di Montalcino Amarone della Valpolicella, are red, it should be noted that Italy also produces white wines of great goodness. And if they do not demonstrate the ability of aging (with some exceptions) of the most famous white wines of France, it is certain that the Italian white wines today are an ode to the great thirst for fresh and very drinkable wine like few others in the world. Not to mention the sweet wines and sparkling wines, which in Italy, as in France, also reach levels of quality almost unattainable to the rest of the wine regions of the world. Certainly this was not always so ... The quality revolution of Italian wine dates back actually sixties. The wine produced before this decade could be very good, even wonderful, but the result of individual exploits, referring to the talent of certain producers to global value as Bartolo Mascarello in Piedmont or Il Poggione or Biondi-Santi in Tuscany. Most of the time (but be careful, not always!) Bottles of Italian wine in the early twentieth century they proved disappointing, the result of viticulture and enology really archaic and deficit. Things started to change over the last 40 years, and almost always for the better The importance of French oak rather than large pieces of oak Slovenia, are often too old and not very clean, the discovery of the malolactic transformation, the introduction of pneumatic presses, l 'application of gravimetry, the use of thermoregulation in the cellar and the use of stainless steel tanks and then, control of the yield, with thinning and green harvesting, defoliation, the choice of most suitable clones, the importance of the mass selection, the grapes harvested grapes to better maturity (not only technological, but also of polyphenols), selecting the berries with more attention (in the vineyard as well as the arrival of the grapes in the cellar, using the tables choice, with, or without, vibrating tables or the most modern optical systems, the importance of a second wine. Especially, the rediscovery of native vines and local, the real, essential richness of the world of Italian wine. There is a rich heritage, an incredible treasure that producing countries like France will have to envy in the coming years. That said, the great Italian wines are produced only from local grapes So while the first Italian wines were mostly pleasant to drink very young people, especially whites, they are now part of the circle of the most famous and most expensive wines in the world. Italian producers have quickly gained the top of the wine world and there are wines of undeniable class in every Italian region. To the north and south, and not only in Piedmont and Tuscany (the most famous Italian wine regions and known by fans), there are real masterpieces! Italian wine is now a "new world", often characterized by great wines because most producers have been able to renew and improve their wines in ways unimaginable in forty or fifty years. It could not be otherwise, because every time reflects his experience, its technology, its lifestyle. And of course, you can do many critical Italians, but you can not say that I know how to live. And wine is an essential part of the Dolce Vita
