TUSCAN EXCELLENCE IN THE KITCHEN

Some of the best-known foods to eat are the bistecca alla fiorentina, a steak cut from Chianina meat, and pork cold meats from the cinta senese pigs, which are a speciality from this region. However, Tuscany is above all a region of wines and mainly red wines, such as Chianti, Brunello di Montalcino and Vino Nobile di Montepulciano.
