DOC area for white, red and rosé wines in the Italian region of Tuscany. It was named after the 70-kilometre-long river of the same name that crosses the two provinces of Siena and Grosseto from east to west. The Val d'Orcia was designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2004. The zone includes the municipalities of Castiglione d'Orcia, Pienza, Radicofani, San Giovanni d'Asso, San Quirico d'Orcia and Trequanda, as well as parts of the municipalities of Abbadia San Salvatore, Chianciano Terme, Montalcino, San Casciano dei Bagni, Sarteano and Torrita di Siena in the province of Siena. If the grapes come from classified vineyards, Vigna followed by the vineyard name can be indicated on the label.
