Poggio Miniera Val di Cornia Rosso DOC

Val di Cornia is a coastal wine region located south of Livorno, in close proximity to the famed Bolgheri DOC. This area was recognized for its quality in 1989 when it was awarded a DOC classification, and, in 2011, it gained the highest DOCG appellation. The wine is made with 100% Sangiovese grapes, that, thanks to a perfect habitat, reach a very high quality level.
