CHIANTI AREA : THE VALLEYS OF WINES

 

Situated between the provinces of Florence and Siena, the Chianti area has always been considered the heart of old Tuscany and is famous worldwide for its famous wines.

A rich history and a winemaking tradition dating back to the thirteenth century have made this area an ideal place for those wishing to take fantastic trips between vineyards, hills and villages. iIn every small town you can come across wineries, castles or simple farms, whose name is placed beside the famous Black Rooster trademark, symbol of Chianti excellence.

The valley offers views of great charm: hills covered with vineyards, beautiful chestnut, oak trees and picturesque medieval villages rich in art as Greve in Chianti, with its ancient triangular square bordered by buildings, porches and arcades.

Another characteristic town is Radda in Chianti that within the original walls include the old village with the palace of the Podesta and the old castle, while the surrounding area holds two beautiful Romanesque churches.

Other highlights include Castellina in Chianti, with the characteristic central square crossed by the medieval Via delle Volte and Gaiole in Chianti, surrounded by historic castles like Fonterutoli and San Leonino.

There are still many surprises in store for this wonderful valley, dominated by ancient traditions, culinary specialties and a deep love for its excellent product: Chianti wine, known and appreciated even beyond national borders.
