The article focuses on the economic, social and institutional transformation of the Tuscan Sangiovese landscape in the 19th and 20th centuries. In particular, it deals with the processes of innovation which characterized the development of the wine business in the area of Brunello di Montalcino and Chianti, as well as the role of the agrarian elites as a factor of reorientation of the social and productive vocations of the territory. It looks especially at the transition from a promiscuous agriculture, mainly finalized to self-consumption, to a specialized agriculture, that helped to deeply modify the landscape, the economy, and the culture of those territories, by acting as an economic driving force for other sectors, first and foremost tourism.
