Chianti Classico

Chianti Classico

The oldest and most respected part of the much larger Chianti region, this series of hills lies between Florence and Siena. The wines produced here are made mostly of Sangiovese grapes, and are known for being approachable and pairing easily with food. The wine estates include some of the most beautiful and imposing villas in Tuscany.
