Top 5 Wines to Drink in Florence in 2024

Let's dive into an Italian pastime and take a look at the wines you must try while exploring the magnificent city of Florence in 2024.

Isole E Olena Chianti Classico

This exquisite blend is a distinguished wine originating from the Chianti region in central Tuscany. Crafted with precision, it comprises 80% Sangiovese, 15% Canaiolo, and 5% Syrah, resulting in a truly magnificent composition of flavours.

The wine is rich and fruity, boasting a delightful intensity and an abundance of flavour. Its finish is beautifully characterized by herbal essences of sage and rosemary. Pair this exquisite wine with a delectable spiced lamb or beef dish for the perfect experience.

Brunello di Montalcino

A rich red wine produced in the vineyards surrounding the town of Montalcino. This exquisite wine exudes intensity, boasting a harmonious blend of woody notes, luscious fruits, and delicate hints of vanilla throughout. Its exceptional quality and captivating flavours make it a true delight for wine enthusiasts.

This wine only gets better with age, the flavours meld together, resulting in a harmonious body with a captivating aromatic presence. Brunello pairs perfectly with complex and rich dishes like red meat and cheese.

Sassicaia

This red wine, crafted primarily with Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc, served as a catalyst for the rise of contemporary blended wines in 1968. 

The harmonious fusion of these two grape varieties produces an exquisite aromatic complexity, expertly balanced with a touch of spice. Indulge in the sublime combination of flavours by pairing this wine with succulent beef or tender venison.

Tignanello

Tignanello, an innovative Italian red wine, revolutionized winemaking in 1970 by blending unique grapes. Made exclusively from the vineyard's limestone-rich soils. This contemporary red stands out for its exclusion of white grapes. 

Crafted in small oak barrels, this exquisite blend harmoniously combines the luscious notes of black cherry and wild berry from the Sangiovese grape with the robust structure and boldness of the Cabernet. Pair it perfectly with classic lasagne or succulent roasted pork.

Carmignano

Despite its origins dating back to the 14th century, this DOCG wine remains relatively unknown. Surprisingly, it was one of the costliest wines of its time.

It is a dry red wine reminiscent of its renowned relative Chianti, and embodies the classic Canaiolo Nero, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Cabernet Franc. With its alluring ruby-red hues, it remains as delectable today as it was four centuries ago.
