CHIANTI

 

Chianti, famous not only for its landscape but also for the fruit which its land offers. The exquisite wine that is produced here, known as far back as the Etruscan times, has given the region prestige and worldwide fame.
The Chianti area is protected by two important associations: the Chianti Classico wine Association and the Gallo Nero Association, whose name derives from the Chianti League, founded in the 13th century by the communes of Castellina, Radda and Gaiole. The hills are absolutely enchanting covered in vineyards and oak, chestnut and holm-oak tree groves. The countryside, dotted with farmhouses, is now an exclusive tourist destination. The beautiful hamlets of the Chianti are often characterised by fortified medieval castles, evidence of the ancient wars between Siena and Florence, while the Romanesque churches emerge from the past amidst the gently rolling landscape.
Passing through the vineyards and still wild woods, you reach Greve. Not to be missed is a visit to Monteriggioni, the most characteristic hamlet just north of Siena, along via Cassia towards Florence. This characteristic village is enclosed by encircling walls where there are also numerous towers still intact to this day.
Following along any street, you will continually encounter farmhouses, farms along beautiful cypress-lined avenues and ancient country houses, each of which seem to want to tell their own story.
