Chianti

It's hard to imagine that this gentle rolling area was once the battlefield of the warring Siena and Florentine armies.  This is why driving through the Chianti area, you will come across many fortified towns and villages and not only miles of vineyards and the opportunity to sample some of the famous Chianti Classico wines. 

Chianti's heritage dates back thousands of years, but the borders that define Chianti Classico were not officially drawn until 1932.


TIPS

  • Avoid Sunday or Wednesday afternoon as in the Chianti region you will find many shops closed in the towns and villages.
  • Try the Macelleria " Cecchini"in Panzono or "Falorni" in Greve as they are the most famous butchers in Italy.
  • Visit Badia Coltibuono and join the wine tour

Between the towns of Radda (4kms) and Gaiole in Chianti lies the historical Villa di Vistarenni dating back to the Seventeenth Century. Its 100 hectares of land in the centre of production of Chianti Classico, right in the middle of the Tuscany region, still remains one of the most photographed villas in Tuscany. A seventeenth-century Villa that belonged to the noble family of Prince Ferdinando Strozzi and then the Baron Giorgio Sonnino features a majestic and unique façade dominating from the top of a hill 500 meters above sea level. The Villa is now an Historical Residence and B&B, location to several films, weddings and events.

Everything about this property is classically Tuscan. If you dream of typical Tuscany as breathtaking panoramas, misty hills covered in precision lines of vineyards, imprecise olive groves, white roads and driveways shadily lined with pointy cypress trees, and grand villas with green shutters, then dream no more, Rosa del Chianti is your reality.
