Wine is undoubtedly one of the typical and excellent products of Tuscany, so much so that it is known, appreciated and exported all over the world.

 

When it comes to Tuscan wine, the thought immediately flies to the Chianti area.

Historically, Chianti was a restricted area, included in the municipalities of Radda in Chianti, Castellina in Chianti and Gaiole in Chianti. Today the territories of the municipalities of Castelnuovo Berardenga and Poggibonsi (in the province of Siena), San Casciano Val di Pesa, Tavarnelle Val di Pesa, Greve in Chianti and part of the municipality of Barberino Val d’Elsa have also been added to this original nucleus ( for the province of Florence) which represent the production area of the wine called “Chianti Classico” (recognizable by the label with the Black Rooster).

Plan a Chianti wine tour and set off to discover and taste the best wines of Tuscany, appreciating the different types of vines in the region.
