Chianti is an area renowned all over the world for its landscapes, its castles and its fine wines, whose production was regulated since the thirteenth century. The three towns of the ancient Chianti League are Castellina, Radda and Gaiole, on the Sienese side of the region.
Castellina is only 16 km from Borgo de Brandi. The characteristic and splendid central square is crossed by via delle Volte, a covered road that had military security functions. As soon as you leave the village, in Fonterutoli you can visit an interesting Etruscan necropolis.
