What is Chianti?
When we talk about Chianti we are talking about wine, but also about the territory from which takes its name.
Chianti is in fact the region in the heart of Tuscany, where Chianti has been produced since 1716.
The area extends for about 100 km, passing by important cities such as Florence, Siena, Arezzo and Pisa, characterized by 8 districts, where this famous wine is produced following strict rules, controlled by the Chianti Consortium.
What are the pleasures of wine?
First of all, wine finds its origins in antiquity.
We must go back in time, about 3000 years ago, when since the times of the Etruscans and the Romans, wine was considered the nectar of the Gods.
Everyone knows the famous God Bacchus!
A mask decorated with rich and juicy grapes!
What is certain is that today’s wine has embellished its taste, aroma and color.
From a ruby red to an intense purple, from a fresh and fruity scent to an essence of tobacco and vanilla, from a light flavor to a more intense and full-bodied one.
All thanks to the patient and careful work that hides behind a simple glass bottle, from the sinuous and particular shapes to the simpler or even rustic ones.
The expert hands and advice of the agronomist and the peculiar importance of the winemaker who, with his senses and his knowledge, recommends for the best and for good wine!
There are many factors that influence the taste of wine: from the soil to the altitude, exposure to the sun and the wise choice of grapes, from Sangiovese, considered the king of Tuscan grapes, to Colorino and Ciliegiolo, to international grapes, such as Merlot, Cabernet and Syrah, just to name a few.
The skillful and hard work of the hands of the grape pickers who, during the harvest, are preparing to choose the best bunches is another of the important and indispensable elements of a chain that brings us a good glass of wine.
The best way to live the pleasures of wine is undoubtedly living it.
In front of a glass, however, it is necessary to pay attention and proceed slowly, without haste.
Tasting is different from just drinking.
To taste is to immerse yourself in color, perfume and taste…
The best way to enjoy the pleasures of wine is certainly by combining dishes of cold cuts and cheeses, a pasta rich in a good meat sauce, a freshly baked lasagna, a Florentine steak, game and for those who are passionate about it too a dish based on truffles!
And for those who don’t love meat?
Tuscany is full of excellent dishes based on tasty vegetables!

Our group of 6 ladies had a highly enjoyable day on the Private Chianti tour. Our driver, Massimo was prompt and attentive in picking us up in our hotel lobby and he was an excellent navigator through the tricky Tuscan roads. He was very knowledgeable on many things Tuscan, and as a sommelier, he educated us on the Chianti wine before we even arrived at the winery. We toured the vineyard and then had a long tasting that included a generous assortment of cold cuts, cheese and bread. In addition to Chianti, we also tasted their dessert wine, Vin Santo and their olive oil, all were very good. We thoroughly enjoyed our day and would highly recommend this tour and specifically our tour director/driver Massimo.
