Must Taste Wines of Siena Region

Although this wine region is producing many types of wines, there are some wines which can be classified under must try types. Following is the list of such wines from Siena region:

Brunello di Montalcino

This great tasting wine is coming from the hottest area of the Montalcino hills.

This is among the most popular Italian red wines and is produced exclusively using the Sangiovese grape variety, which has been renamed as ‘Brunello’ due to its deep red color.

One of the most surprising features of this wine is that this can be able to withstand for a longer duration, even for 50 years.

This wine would make a good match with your roasted meat.

Chianti Colli Senesi

Chianti Colli Senesi is one of the wine types that are being produced in the region of Colli Senesi.

This is also a red wine that is again produced using Sangiovese grape variety.

It is different from Brunello di Montalcino in the way that some other grape varieties.

The maximum amount of other grapes that can be added to this wine should be 25%.

This wine would have lower alcohol content and so this would be a great choice for the beginners. This would be a great combination with loin steak and pappardelle.

Chianti Classico

This is the wine that is got from the hills running between the regions of Florence and Siena. The constituents of this wine are:

The younger versions of this wine will make a good pair with all the Tuscan cuisines.

When this particular wine is aged for at least 24 months (Chianti vecchio) or 36 months (Riserva), this wine would make a good combination with meat dishes, cheese, and roasts.

Vernaccia

Siena is not only famous for its red wines but also is known for some of the great tasting white wines like Vernaccia.

This is got from the hotter regions of San Gimignano which has the pride of receiving the first DOC promotion in Italy.

Currently, it is a DOCG wine that is produced using San Gimignano grapes.

This wine would resist aging and hence, this should not be kept more than 5 years.

I would recommend this wine for you if you are a lover of vintage wines. This would taste best with your appetizers and sea foods.
