The Doc Orcia wine region was born in 2000 in Tuscany between the Brunello di Montalcino and Vino Nobile regions.
There are similarities between the wine and the young woman in the fairy tale: both have two stepsisters, more famous and richer than them, and in the case of the Cenerentola DOC Orcia they are two neighbouring wine regions for the Brunello and Nobile wines.
To produce the Cenerentola wine Sangiovese and Foglia Tonda grapes are used, the latter is an old autochthonous variety that was abandoned about a century ago.
