Carmignano Wine Tour
Carmignano is Tuscany's least known red DOCG wine. The tiny production area is ten miles west of Florence, about in
the middle of Tuscany along the region's east-west axis.
Only a handful of companies make wine here, in a vineyard area of only about 270 acres. Altough the area is cool, relatively low altitudes enable Sangiovese grapes to ripen well.
One of Carmignano's claims to fame is that Cabernet Sauvignon has traditionally been grown in the zone. Carmignano derives primarily from Sangiovese, along with Cannaiolo and two Cabernet varieties.
