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.

You will have time at leisure to visit at least two of the Chianti villages, such as Radda in Chianti, Gaiole in Chianti, Castellina in Chianti, Greve in Chianti considered the capital of Florence's Chianti region.

F.A.Q.

 

  • What kind of wine is Chianti?

 

Chianti is a type of red wine that originates from the Chianti region in Tuscany, Italy. It is one of Italy's most famous and iconic wines, known for its versatility, vibrant flavors, and food-friendly nature. Traditionally made primarily from Sangiovese grapes, Chianti can also include other grape varieties such as Canaiolo, Colorino, and Merlot, among others, depending on the specific regulations of the Chianti DOCG (Denominazione di Origine Controllata e Garantita) appellation.

Chianti wines are typically characterized by their bright acidity, moderate tannins, and flavors of cherry, plum, and earthy undertones. The Sangiovese grape, which is the backbone of Chianti blends, contributes a distinct tartness and herbal notes, often described as reminiscent of dried herbs, tomato leaf, and leather.

There are several styles of Chianti, ranging from lighter, fruit-forward versions meant for early consumption to more complex and structured wines that benefit from aging. Within the Chianti region, there are also subzones, such as Chianti Classico, which is considered the heartland of Chianti production and is known for producing some of the highest quality wines in the region.

Chianti is incredibly versatile when it comes to food pairings, making it an excellent companion to a wide range of dishes, including pasta with tomato-based sauces, grilled meats, aged cheeses, and traditional Tuscan cuisine. Its acidity and moderate alcohol content help it cut through rich and fatty foods while complementing the flavors of many Italian dishes.

Overall, Chianti is celebrated not only for its rich history and cultural significance but also for its delicious flavors and its ability to enhance the dining experience in a variety of settings.
