A Cellar in Cinigiano (GR) – Tuscan Maremma – Montecucco Wine and Amiata Flavors Road

In the heart of the Tuscan Maremma, you can go through various wine roads: wine tourism itineraries designed to help you discover the food and wine tradition of the area and the evocative beauties of medieval villages.

Wine is one of the components that most characterize Tuscany and especially Maremma, contributes with its excellence to open a window on the territory in which it is born. And it is in this sense that the wine routes come to life. Fourteen wine routes are currently recognized throughout the Tuscany region. In the Maremma Livornese or Alta Maremma, along the beautiful territory of the Etruscan Coast, the Costa degli Etruschi Wine and Oil Road is accessible. In the Maremma Grossetana you can go through three different wine routes: the Colli di Maremma Wine and Flavors Road, south of the Province of Grosseto, la Monteregio di Massa Marittima Wine and Flavors Road, and the Montecucco Wine and Amiata Flavors Road inland towards the Monte Amiata, the most recent.

The Wine Roads are a combination of food and wine and tourism that re-evaluate the territory and its specificities.

The Maremma Wine Roads, through wine tourism itineraries (wine tourism, practiced especially in the autumn period), promote the places that producethe best red and white wines of the area with the aim of bringing the public to taste (and buy) produced directly in wineries, farms and vineyards.

They are therefore an important opportunity for economic and cultural promotion and developmentof the Maremma area.
