Val di Cornia Rosso

DOCG area (also Rosso della Val di Cornia) for red wine in the Maremma landscape in the Italian region of Tuscany. The wine type formerly included in the Val di Cornia DOC area has been highly classified in 2011. The zone completely covers the municipalities of Sassetta and Suvereto, and partly Campiglia Marittima, Piombino and San Vincenzo in the province of Livorno, and Monteverdi Marittimo in the province of Pisa. If the grapes come from classified vineyards, Vigna followed by the name of the vineyard can be indicated on the bottle label.

The wine is blended from Sangiovese (max. 40%), Cabernet Sauvignon and/or Merlot (max. 60%), as well as other approved varieties (max. 20%). It must mature for at least 18 months and have an alcohol content of at least 12.5% by volume. With 26 months of ageing (18 months in wooden barrels and 6 in bottles) and at least 13% vol. of alcohol, it may call itself Riserva.
