A stunning area in the center of Tuscany is home to more than 250 wineries that sell their products under their own labels.

The Black Rooster is used as the logo for all Chianti Classico wines from past 1924. It is related to the rivalry between Siena and Florence in the Middle Ages, according to an intriguing narrative.
According to legend, after years of violent fighting between the Republics of Florence and Siena for control of Chianti, it was decided to set the border with a very particular competition.
Two horsemen at cockcrow were to set out each from their own city and the border would be set at the point where they would meet.
The black rooster of the Florentines, which he had fasted, crowed first, then the white rooster of the Sienese, which had been well cared for.
So it was that the Florentine knight left early and arrived almost at the borders of Siena.

You will get the chance to sample Chianti wines produced in various terroirs by various grape varieties, soils, climates, and grape ripening on your Chianti Tour visiting three different wineries.
