Established on the 23rd of March 1966, the DOC Bianco di Pitigliano was one of the first premier wine to be recognised in Italy. Dozens of vineyards in the neighbouring towns of Sorano and Manciano now produce this incredible wine and the Cantina Cooperativa di Pitigliano acts a reference guide for those looking to get their hands on the best bottles. Straw-coloured, the wine has a more or less intense smell and delicate taste that is fresh, lively and slightly bitter on the palate. It is composed of at least 40 per cent Trebbiano grapes and a maximum 50 per cent of any other local white grape (usually the Greco, Malvasia bianca lunga, Verdello, Grechetto, Ansonica, Chardonnay, Sauvignon, Viognier, Pinot Bianco or Riesling italico). The production methods of this wine have been handed down orally for centuries and it remains one of the unmistakable flavours of the Tuscan hills today.

Established in 1999, the DOC Rosso Sovana has earned quite a reputation in such a short amount of time, thanks largely to its incredible quality and affordable price. Unlike other classic red or rosè wine, the Rosso Sovana can be produced from a number of diverse grape varieties. However, local vineyards usually use the ciliegiolo, a robust grape with a strong aroma, or the comparatively milder el’aleatico, a perfect end-of-the-meal grape that grows best in the countryside around Sovana. The Rosso Sovana is also produced in Sorano, Pitigliano and Manciano and many vineyards in these areas offer guided tastings with food pairings.
