There is a place in Tuscany, between Siena and Florence, that has always been called “Chianti“. Some municipalities have the word “Chianti” in their name (Gaiole in Chianti, Radda in Chianti, Castellina in Chianti, Greve in Chianti). But the wine that takes the name Chianti is not made here, it is made in other areas of Tuscany, because only the “Chianti Classico” can be produced in the Chianti area.

It seems paradoxical, right? But it is so … for historical reasons that you will discover by participating in a visit with me in the Chianti area.

It is a heterogeneous region, divided among 9 municipalities, with different altitudes and soil. Wine is an ancient tradition, which for centuries has also had a legal recognition (the Notice of Cosimo III of 1716 was the first law in the world to introduce the concept of denomination of origin).

There are hundreds of producers of Chianti Classico: among them you may find ancient castles, modern wineries and individual winemakers.

Three types of wine: vintage, the youngest and jovial wine, the ideal companion of the daily table; Riserva, the long-lasting wine that evolves with the years; Gran Selezione that aims to represent the maximum expression of a producer.
