It is fairly possible that Italy is the oldest wine-producing region among all the wine producing regions in the world. According to the evidences that archaeologists have found, Etruscans were producing wine effectively around 2,000 years ago.

Writers from Petrarch and Dante’s time have talked about Sangiovese and Chianti, wine varietals that still grow today in the exact same regions. Italy has plenty of pleasures for wine-enthusiasts, including a chance to learn about Italian wines. Many people who are into wines go on vineyard tours and enjoy wine degustation while they observe how those wines are produced. Following are three of the best wine growing regions in Italy which every wine enthusiast should visit for sure:

Tuscany is known for its Sangiovese and Chianti wines, in addition to Brunello and Montepulicano varietals. Tuscany's best vineyards are in Chianti, Brunello di Montalcino and Carmignano. With every visit, you will fall a little more in love with the gorgeous hues, treasured personality and absolute splendor. The beautiful memories remain.
