Unlike the Chianti Classico and the other historical regions of the hinterland of the Tuscany region, the history of the land of Bolgheri and its wine is very recent as it was not a very suitable land for Sangiovese.

But About 55 years ago the creator of the Sassicaia winery discovered that Bordeaux vines were suitable for this place. After also another famous person like Antinori competed in the area, first with Ornellaia and then with Guado al Tasso. And so Angelo Gaja also invested in the area of ​​this wine region on the Tuscan coast.

Wine prices in the area can sometimes be very expensive, but not for wine collectors and red wine lovers.
