Chianti hills cover the region between the cities of Florence and Siena. A unique landscape famous for its lonely stone-made farmhouses, the cypress trees on the hilltops, the vineyards turning to yellow and red at the end of September.
But the main reason why people from all over the world come here is of course him, The Chianti Classico.
Based on Sangiovese grape, this wine is always been produced here, in the first territory of wine in the world, the Chianti Classico region.
My purpose is leading you through this amazing area for discovering what is beside wine: a world of stories and people which have made the area unique.
Culture and tradition here is millenary, and it’s mixed so deeply with the artistic tradition.
During our day we’ll discover the traditional production of Terracotta, one of the excellences of the area, still created in the ancient way, like the Etruscans used to do more than 2500 years ago.
And to complete the cultural journey I’ll lead you first by a small medieval hamlet, nestled on a hilltop in the heart of the region, then to a 1000 years old monastery, which hides some masterpieces of Renaissance art.
But of course we can not miss wine and food here. Let’s go for a wine tasting by one of the highest wine producers of the region: on a very high hilltop with stunning views you will taste the original Chianti wine. A genuine and elegant wine which keeps the aromas and structure of the tradition.
And to complete the gastronomic experience I’ll take you to an old butcher for a tasting of cold-cuts and cheese. Here you will find good, genuine products served in a beautiful environment more than 200 years old.
All these aspects are linked each-other by unique stories of people that generation by generation have made what we call today simply “Chianti”.
