Chianti was the first Italian DOC wine to be named after the hills between Florence and Siena, which is widely associated with Chianti Classico: 70,000 ha recognized by law as the oldest and most valuable production.
The beauty, history, character and unique flavors of Tuscany come together in this wine, which is one of the most famous “Made in Italy” symbols. While the area has featured various vine varieties over the centuries, Sangiovese has been and still is by far the most common.
The combination of body and aromas given by such vine varieties, and the characteristics of the different types of soil, altitudes and micro-climates, come together into DOCG Chianti
Chianti can be a young, fresh and pleasing wine, however, in some areas, it undergoes a medium to long aging process, which gives it its unmistakable color, aroma and flavor.
