Tuscany and Umbria


In this particular area of Italy, the territories of Perugia, Arezzo and Siena meet together, forming the famous Ancient Etruscan Road, while the local archaeological findings attest the natural vocation of this area for olive and grapevine cultivation (Pliny the Elder, Naturalis Historiae).


The historical influences persist in local idioms and also reflect themselves in a wine tradition which is oriented toward the production of red wines destined for ageing.
