Maremma in Tuscany, a marshland reclaimed for agricultural use is not a unique phenomenon in the wine world as it finds mention along with Bordeaux’s famous Médoc peninsula. Enchanting landscapes, rich history, luxurious country houses, delicious cuisine and choice of wine varietals define this region.
Maremma has an authentic and outspoken character with a relatively untouched and sparsely populated area with very little industrialization. It offers a varied landscape of plains and hills and has a rocky and mostly unspoilt coastline with olive groves and vineyards. Medieval art cities, abbeys, castles and fortified villages built on canyons covered with lush green forests, watchtowers overlooking the sea, rolling hills and heavenly beaches dot the region. Local handicrafts offer products of all kinds to buy in the charming little shops of the country towns.

Maremma Toscana is an appellation title covering a wide array of wine styles from the province of Grosseto in Tuscany. As is the trend for Italy's new and updated appellations, Maremma Toscana's focus is on varietal wines, both dry and sweet. Wines here are made from a wide range of grape varieties. Red grapes include the Bordeaux varieties Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petite Verdot. Tuscany also produces sweet whites of high quality, most famously vin santo. This tradition is continued in Maremma Toscana.
