Most of the important traditional wine producers are located along the axis formed by Florence and Siena. The most famous region is Chianti along with neighboring Montalcino and Montepulciano. The white wines are less famous than the reds, but as an exception the Vernaccia of San Gimignano is recognized as a DOCG wine. The Tuscan wine industry has evolved a lot during the last 30-40 years, and the result is what is called Super Tuscan wine, famously produced in Bolgheri but also in Maremma and many other parts of Tuscany.

Tuscany is also famous for bike touring. Hardly a cyclist will find such a variety of landscapes concentrated in one region. A beauty that unfolds along a continuum that pervades every small village; that insinuates itself in the endless museums, in the architecture of the country delicatessens the "Alimentari", in the biting sarcasm of the inhabitants. Cycling is the best way to be able to capture this magic and the richness that the minor roads give to those who take advantage of it.
