The Chianti is the area of production of one of the most ancient wines in the world.Italy. Just think of the year the Chianti Classico Consortium (1716), which includes some hundreds of wineries, to understand immediately that wine here is a secular tradition.

The territory is a continuous up and down on the enchanted hills of the Tuscany which in spring/summer explode of green but also in autumn do not lose their charm. The grapes that characterize this wine (and not only) is the Sangiovese most cultivated in the territory of the Chianti Classico. The stop at one or more of the wineries in the Chianti Classico for a tasting (and why not a lunch as well) together with the visit of some of the characteristic towns and villages of this wonderful area, will make your day an experience that cannot be missed when you stop in Tuscany.
