Although risotto is not a typical dish of this region, there is a small area of rice production near the small town of Pontedera - where the world-famous factory of Piaggio is situated, home of the Vespa scooter and the remarkable three-wheeled Ape agricultural vehicle - so a few rice recipes do exist. This one is for a classic risotto, and uses the red wine of the Chianti area to reiterate its Tuscan authenticity. Sage is the herb of choice, but since rosemary is a common herb of this region, you could use that instead if you like.
