DOC area for white, red and rosé wines in the central west of the Italian region of Tuscany, named after the municipality on the Livorno coast. The vineyards, only 200 hectares in size at the end of the 1990s, now cover around 900 hectares around the municipality of Castagneto Carducci in the province of Livorno in the west of the region. This was named after the literary historian Giosuè Carducci (1835-1907), who spent his childhood there. Bolgheri is a district eight kilometres to the north, which includes the Oasi di Bolgheri nature reserve of about 500 hectares. Among the best-known and largest producers are Antinori and Gaja with the Ca' Marcanda vineyard. The picture shows the Bellaria Alta vineyard of the Ornellaia winery with a view of the sea with the coastal municipality of Marina di Bibbona.
